Appeal launched to maintain Corris Railway’s southern extension progress

Corris Railway in Mid Wales is appealing for donations to help complete a new southern extension which will eventually double the length of the revived section of line south of Maespoeth Junction.
The railway has been cracking on with the building of an embankment, with 20 lorries a day discharging material from the new Dyfi Bridge project at Machynlleth during February.
This progress has wider implications for Corris Railway revivalists, as more money needs to be raised to pay for the material and use of plant and machinery.
Whilst a fund has been established to meet the costs, more money is needed to pay for the crossing of Nant Goedwig stream..
Anyone wishing to support the southern extension project, which will allow a longer narrow gauge train journey in the picturesque Dulas Valley, can donate via www.corris.co.uk or by sending a cheque, payable to Corris Railway, to Corris Railway (SE), Station Yard, Corris, Machynlleth, SY20 9SH.
