The BWLR is not a dusty museum of old relics, but a vibrant collection of restored railway and agricultural equipment. Over the years the railway has become a popular location for educational visits by schools and youth groups. There is no charge for educational groups and the format of the day can be tailored to suit the needs of each party depending upon age and level of educational interest. As well as instilling an interest in rail transport, a visit to Bredgar also helps broaden knowledge of industry and social history among young visitors.
