    Does anyone know how Margam Park railway operates? I know the country park is owned and run by Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council, but not sure if the railway itself is run by them, a separate commercial entity, or a volunteer operation.

    Cheers

    Further to this, I gather there may be an opportunity for volunteer involvement at Margam - if you're interested let me know

    I don’t think there ever was a railway here no more but nearby was the Swansea valley railway so it could be that.

    Considering I was up there last week giving the loco a once over and taking her out along the line - it's definitely there, will definitely be operating, and potentially has a really exciting future ahead
