 Welshpool to Llanfair Caereinion.
There is plenty to see and do around the area. At Welshpool away from the railway just a few miles out of the town, is the National Trust owned Powis Castle. At Llanfair station there is a café and the loco sheds. (the loco sheds as far as I know are not open to public)
The WLLR  is also famous for it’s annual steam Gala when the line operates its whole fleet of locos!
Oh and lets not forget the gruelling 1 in 29 incline out of Welshpool! 
Stops along line are, Raven Square, Sylfaen, Castle Caereinion, Cyfronydd and Heniarth.
