Once the focus of the local community, the Cardi Bach railway ran from Whitland to Cardigan between 1886 and 1963. On Saturday, April 20, Cardigan’s Mwldan Cinema will be screening a collection of four short films about the line.

This should be especially interesting in light of the recent news that the line may be opened as a trail and cycle path in the future.

The stations en route were Llanfalteg, Login, Llanglydwen, Rhydowen, Llanfyrnach, Glogue, Crymych Arms, Boncath and Cilgerran.

Earmarked for closure under the Beeching Axe, the line ceased operation on May 27, 1963 and the closure marked a change in a whole way of life and the end of an era. Emyr Phillips will take viewers on a fascinating trip through time, narrating the films bilingually and delving deeper into the story; the perfect opportunity to learn more about local history linking Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire with Cardigan.

A fundraiser for Cardi Bach Railway Society, tickets are available from www.mwldan.co.uk (24/7) or by calling 01239 621200 between 12 noon and 8pm, Tuesday to Sunday.
