The Mumbles Train
The Mumbles Train was the first passenger line in the world and started in March 1807.
The coaches were initially drawn by horses on the rails laid in 1804 to carry limestone from Mumbles to Swansea docks. Steam locomotives took over from horses, and later the locomotives were replaced with an electric railway.
The Mumbles Train is remembered very fondly and many people have vivid memories of using it to travel between Swansea and Mumbles.
