Community rail partnerships
Community rail partnerships are a means by which stakeholders along a rail corridor can play an active role in the development of their local rail service.
They bring together train operators, Network Rail,local authorities, local employers, development and tourism agencies, community groups and other locally based groups.
These are the six community rail partnerships in Wales.

The line travels south from Shrewsbury through rolling hills and towns such as Knighton, Llandrindod Wells and Llanwrtyd Wells before reaching the steel and tinplate town of Llanelli and then Swansea, the hometown of Dylan Thomas.
