Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
In 1867, the railway link between Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire, and Aberystwyth, Cardiganshire was completed. During the 1930s there were five passenger trains a day between Aberystwyth and Carmarthen and several goods trains. An enquiry over the continued existence of the railway was held in 1963, and although continued, it was finally closed due to flooding in December 1964, and was never reopened.
