Carno, Powys

Carno is a village in Powys, Mid Wales. It is located on the main A470 road between Llanbrynmair & Caersws. The local railway station, on the Cambrian Line, closed as part of the Beeching closures in the 1960s. An ongoing campaign started in August 2009 for its reopening, with the Welsh Assembly agreeing to do a business study as part of the Cambrian Rail Study. At present, the adjacent stations on the line are at Caersws and Machynlleth.
