The Gwili Steam Railway (in Welsh, Rheilffordd Ager Y Gwili) operates a standard gauge preserved railway from Abergwili Junction (near Carmarthen) in South Wales along a short section of the former Carmarthen to Aberystwyth railway closed for passenger traffic in 1965 and lifted in 1973.

The Gwili railway was launched in 1975 and by 1978 had saved 0.5 miles of track and was running an initial steam hauled service. Since then the railway has expanded to Danycoed and the company continues to hope to expand to Llanpumpsaint. Currently, the railway is working south towards Carmarthen. The locomotive stock of the Gwili railway is unusual in that in mostly represents local industrial and wartime operations rather than mainline services; in an interview with Steam Railway Magazine, the railway intends to obtain a larger loco or locos for passenger service.
