The Golden Valley Railway traversed 19 miles of remote Herefordshire from Pontrilas to Hay-on-Wye. It opened in 1881-9. The line was never financially successful. It was kept going largely by the financial support of a few local landowners.

The line closed entirely in 1898, but was rescued by the GWR who purchased it and re-opened it in 1901. Regular passenger services lasted 40 years more.
