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.
