Cambrian Railways facts for kids
The Cambrian Railways owned 230 miles (370 km) of track over a large area of mid-Wales. The system was made from a number of earlier railways. The Cambrian connected with two of the larger railways to give connections to England. These were:
- London and North Western Railway for connections to North West England
- Great Western Railway for connections to London
The Cambrian Railways amalgamated with the Great Western Railway on 1 January 1922 as a result of the Railways Act 1921. The name is continued today in the route known as the Cambrian Line.
