A home up for sale could be just the ticket for a commuter - because it is an old station master's house on a working railway line.

The Grade-II listed building is on the platform at a picturesque rural station and is on the market for £145,000.

Buyers could steam up the property ladder with the privately owned building at Caersws Railway Station in Powys.

The line runs between Shrewsbury and Aberystwyth and links with the main UK rail network.

The station at the tiny village was once managed by famous Welsh poet John Ceiriog Hughes.

Neville Roberts, of estate agents Morris, Marshall and Poole, said: "While the property stands along the platform, there is private access, a garden, detached garage and parking spaces.

"So it's also self-contained.

"The property is situated in a beautiful area of Mid Wales with good communications and could be a suitable holiday home location."

The house includes five principal rooms, a kitchen, cloakroom, large gardens, a garage and additional parking.

The station was built in the 1890s but was already home to a terminus linking the railway to the Van Railway between 1871 and 1940, which spurred off to the Van lead mine.
