Anything Goes Gala

July 6 July 7

Our annual weekend where anything – and everything – can happen returns.

Our star guest, the brand new Corris Railway No.10!

It’s time to get all the toys out once again for our annual weekend where anything can – often does – happen! This year we’re delighted to be welcoming newly completed Falcon locomotive No. 10 thanks to our friends at the Corris Railway, where our own No. 3 (a former resident on the original railway there) will be visiting the month before.

Join us for a weekend of small trains, smaller trains, and tiny trains as narrow gauge, miniature, and model trains all come together for a full-on weekend of activity, with the Llechfan Garden Railway at Wharf open for viewing and miniature railway rides, all while our steam and diesel fleet are kept busy with a jam-packed timetable of passenger and freight trains through the Fathew Valley.

It’ll be a weekend that can’t be missed, and all for the regular price of a day rover ticket too. Can you get a better deal than that?

The full itinerary is currently being finalized, but what we can tell you is to expect all our usual shenanigans – freight trains, double headers, and everyone’s favourite ‘express shunter’ Alf will be part of a weekend packed full of interesting sights.

The 1974 AGM Special

To whet your appetite in the meantime, this year we shall be celebrating 50 years since the 1974 AGM train ran which saw Nos. 1 and 2 pull an astonishing 12 coach train up the line. We’ll be recreating this service as closely as practically possible on the Sunday morning with the train dividing upon arrival at Abergynolwyn where there will also be another locomotive parade in the afternoon, following the traditional lineup at Wharf on Saturday evening.

For those making a long weekend of it, we are also planning a photographic evening on Monday July 8th with our star guest.

Timetable & more details to follow.
