The Brecon Mountain Railway runs on the original Brecon and Merthyr track which first opened in 1859 and was largely used to move coal from the mines to the coast. As an industrial track running through some of the toughest terrain in Wales, the line was soon nicknamed the Breakneck and Murder Railway. It was used intensively during WWII to supply coal to the Royal Navy. Most of the line finally closed in 1964 but was later acquired by The Brecon Mountain Railway in 1980. They have significantly restored much of the line and visitors can now travel in all-weather observation carriages drawn by a vintage steam locomotive from the station at Pant alongside the Taf Fechan Reservoir and through the spectacular scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Visitors can also view the workshops at the Pant station and see firsthand the restoration of some wonderful steam locomotives.
