Talyllyn Railway Society

The Talyllyn Railway has been in continuous operation since 1865. Originally constructed to transport slate from a local quarry to the Cambrian Coast main line, the railway still follows the same route, but carries around 50,000 visitors rather than stones!

The Talyllyn is famous for being the World’s First Preserved Railway. In 1951 the operation was taken over by a group of preservationists who set the precedent for other heritage railways.

The Railway is still operated by volunteers, who run the six steam engines (including the original two locomotives) along the 7.25mile route from Tywyn to Nant Gwernol.

New volunteers are always very welcome! Let us know what you are interested in doing.

The sales stand has Talyllyn Railways and narrow gauge railway related products and souvenirs.

6880 Betton Grange Society

The Society are building a full size replica of an extinct ex-GWR Collett-designed ‘Grange’ class 4-6-0 steam locomotive. Work is at an advanced stage and a first steaming is due later this year. Find out how you can join this exciting project, sponsor a part or support one of out fund-raising initiatives.
