Fish & chip supper

Members of the Railriders group travelled from Aberystwyth to Devil's Bridge on the Vale of Rheidol Railway. It took place on Saturday 18th August 2018. We departed at 6pm and returned 9pm. Unfortunately the summer weather decided to change from hot and dry to wet. However we were not underterred. The views across the valley were spectacular (when we could see through the rain) as usual. 


Transport for the trip will be by car share

Christmas Outing

Members of the group organised a Christmas lunch on the Severn Valley Railway on Wednesday 13th December.  The visit included a 30 minute trip on the railway ending up in the engine shed in Highley where they enjoyed a splendid christmas lunch as well as good look at the engines and other items on display in the exhibition.
