The line between Newtown - Machynlleth has now reopened
We are sorry for the earlier disruption caused to our customers
From surfboards to scooters and salamanders to rowing boats, our customers regularly ask us whether they can take a variety of items along for the ride.
Here to help you is Arriva Trains Wales' short guide to some of the things that you can, and cannot, carry on our services:
As a guide, you will require special permission for anything over
one metre in length, for which we may have to charge you extra, but the
common sense rule is that anything that cannot be carried by one
person, on their own, cannot be taken on the train. Finally, during
periods of engineering work, you won't be able to take any large
objects on replacement bus services.
For further information, please visit the National Rail Enquires Advice and Regulations on what you can and cannot take on a train.
If you are interested in taking your bike on the train with you, take a look at our information on bicycles .
