Vale of Towy Railway
The Vale of Towy Railway (VoTR) was a Welsh railway that provided an 11.25 mile-long extension of the Llanelly Railway from Llandeilo to Llandovery. It was incorporated by Act of Parliament of 10 July 1854 and opened on 1 April 1858.
The VoTR was a standard gauge route that provided an alternative to the Great Western Railway and Llandovery became a potential endpoint for other rail companies in North Wales and the West of England.
The route today
The route remains in use as part of the Heart of Wales Line.
