Yes, listen! We’ve produced a bilingual audio guide to some of the sights you pass whilst travelling on the Swansea Bay Rider.
The nine-track playlist, available via Soundcloud, presents some of the points of interest along the land train’s two-mile journey, between Blackpill Lido and Southend Gardens, Mumbles.
The first track welcomes the listener on board and introduces the land train built by Dotto Trains, based in northern Italy. Whilst the second track provides a brief history of the Mumbles train.
Other tracks cover Amy Dillwyn, the bay rider passes a commemorative blue plaque near the West Cross Inn, Clyne Gardens, Oystermouth Castle and Mumbles pier and lifeboat.
The playlist’s order runs in the direction from Blackpill to Southend. If you’re starting your journey at Southend, we suggest listening to Track 1, “Welcome”, before moving to Track 9, “Mumbles Lifeboat”, and listening in reverse order.
We hope you like it and welcome your feedback. Enjoy the ride!
