The railway formed an important part of life in Hay for over 100 years, preceded by a horse-drawn tram that followed the same route form Brecon to Kington. This tour  heads across town to follow the route of the railway line from Hay Station to The Warren. This scenic walk of about 3 miles is mostly flat and incorporates town pavements and farmland footpaths with some stiles.

An exact replica model of the railway was recently discovered and restored by members of Hay History Group. It is sited in the Salem Chapel on Bell Bank.

Tour begins & ends in the centre of Hay outside the Cheese Market, Memorial Square, HR3 5AF
