The Mid Wales Line was a standard gauge railway line that opened in 1864 as a North-South route serving central Welsh towns including Llanidloes, Rhayader, Builth Wells and Brecon. There were over 20 intermediate stations on this rural line, many minor, given the very sparse local populations. The railway met with what is now termed the 'Cambrian Line' at the north end, at Moat Lane Junction between Caersws and Newtown, and connected to the complex South Wales network in several places. Though a long route, it served to link several quite significant rural centres and the key regional towns. It should not be confused with the scenic Central Wales Line, now marketed as the Heart of Wales Line, which it crossed approximately half-way along its length at Builth Road, nor with the Cambrian Line from Shrewsbury to Machynlleth. Both of these lines undeniably run at least partially through 'mid Wales' and both remain open.
