To find out how it was, try this fascination 20 minute excursion.
This film (courtesy of Michael Clemens Railways) is a classic railway journey. Taking in Carmarthen, Bronwydd Arms, Henllan, Newcastle Emlyn, Bryn Teify, Maesycrugiau, Llandysul, Lampeter, Aberayron Junction, Talsarn, Felinfach, Derry Ormond, Llangeitho, Tregaron, Strata Florida, Caradoc Falls (!), Trawscoed, Llanilar, Llanrhystud Road, the trip to Abersytwyth would have taken 2 – 3 hours.
