The Bishops Castle Transport and Railway Museum is a heritage site established and run by an enthusiastic team of volunteers. The museum was opened in 1999 to preserve records and memorabilia of the Bishops Castle Railway, but has since expanded to include other material which is of great interest to railway enthusiasts and casual browsers alike.
Although the history of this remarkable railway extends over a period of 70 years, 69 of them were in receivership. The line was originally planned to run from Craven Arms to Montgomery with a branch to Bishops Castle, but money ran out before the last stretch could be built.
