VISITORS to Mid and North Wales are being encouraged to park their car and take the train in a sustainable transport and tourism initiative.
Focused on three of Wales' most scenic railways – Conwy Valley Line, Cambrian Lines and Heart of Wales Line – the Show Me Wales Rail Trails project aims to make it easier for visitors to identify accessible things to do and places to visit and stay in towns and villages along the lines that do not require a car.
A bi-lingual, business card sized pocket guide has been produced showing a map of the rail routes and connections together with information about the region’s highlights, including Glyndwr's Castles, Cardigan Bay beaches, cycling and mountain bike routes, walking trails and market towns.
The three railways cover Conwy in the north to Swansea in the south and from Shrewsbury in the east to Aberystwyth on the Cardigan Bay Coast.
