The Carno Station Action Group was set up in 2002 as a sub-committee of Carno Community Council to campaign for the re-opening of Carno railway station on the Cambrian Line between Shrewsbury and Aberystwyth. Carno is a growing village with a population of about 700 and is likely to grow further. It is located on the longest stretch of railway without an intermediate station in the whole of Wales - the 22 miles between Caersws and Machynlleth. The group submitted an 800-signature petition to the National Assembly for Wales in June 2007. The group believes that the capital asset of the railway line passing through the village is being wasted as long as the trains pass through without stopping and has produced a 60-page business case entitled the Carno Transport Appraisal.
