Members of the public have been warned to stay off a light railway line during the lockdown.

Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway has reminded visitors that live locally that the line is closed.

But its operators also told the public that there are still trains running on the line for inspection and maintenance purposes – and that they should not be going onto the tracks.

A spokesperson said: “Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the line is currently closed, however this does not give members of the public the right to use the track as a footpath, cross-country running track or a dog exercise zone.

“Trains, for the purpose of inspection and essential maintenance, are running from time to time. Keep safe – keep off the line.”
