Pretty sure there was a thread in the UK as a whole re: this - but didn't find one re: Wales.

Basically, I am interested in the highest number of stops between two stations involving a journey wholly within Wales and its associated islands (i.e. including Anglesey, etc.) - but you need to keep changes to a minimum within Wales.

A look at the National Rail Map however seemed to show that you might need to utilise some English lines (Shrewsbury - Hereford, etc).

Will try and add some more detail if needed later.

Surely you'd have to go up the Marches, which is in England.

Unless I have interpreted the question incorrectly

The OP has originally said Marches will have to be used but has disappeared and left another message which will publish when time available. Post #1 refers

I would think this would be something like Fishguard to the most extreme point of the Heart of Wales - I'm guessing Knuckles, unless you started at say Abergavenny and went via Llanelli

1/ Fishguard to Carmarthen
2/ Carmarthen to Llanelli
3/ Llanelli to Shrewsbury
4/ Shrewsbury to Machynlleth
5/ Machynlleth to Pwllheli

Although through trains are possible on that route, at some times you would need to change as above.

The connections NRE throws up are 2,2 and 3 changes.

Though the route must surely have the "most least" stops (counting requests, obviously) as opposed to changes.
