Help keep the Talyllyn Railway's wheels turning for future generations...

How you can help…

The Talyllyn Railway runs trains for the enjoyment of thousands of visitors across the world every year.  The railway operates Victorian steam locomotives and carriages that are kept to meticulous standards, the engines and carriages run on a track that is kept to the best possible standards.  All of this costs lots of money and the Railway relies on financial support and is always grateful for donations and offers of support to help keep the wheels turning for this and the next generation of visitors.

We are pleased to say you can now Donate Online to our charity arm ‘Talyllyn Holdings Limited’ using BT MyDonate which accepts all major credit cards, and you can also Gift Aid your donation.

As a registered charity, we can increase the value of donations from anyone who pays UK Income Tax through Gift Aid.  This means we receive an extra 25p for every pound you donate by recovering the Income Tax which you have already paid, at no extra cost to you, all you have to do is complete the Gift Aid declaration.


Your Legacy could help to preserve a little bit of yesterday for the pleasure of tomorrow.  Income from visitors covers the direct cost of running trains but cannot fund the restoration and ensure the long-term survival of historically important locomotives, carriages and buildings.

What interested you may not always interest your family, but a gift in your Will could reduce the Inheritance Tax payable by your heirs, as donations of money or property to registered charities – such as Talyllyn Holdings Limited – are excluded from the valuation of your estate.

Raise money when you search the internet using  ‘easysearch’

When searching on the internet switch to using instead of your usual search engine. It is a ‘super’ search engine that combines the strengths of several search providers together – Yahoo!, MSN Windows Live, and many more.  It works just like any other search engine, bringing you accurate results every time, but easysearch gives you something back!

It is completely free to use and if you make just 10 searches a day, you could raise £20 a year, or more, for the Talyllyn Holdings Limited, just by switching to easysearch.
