Fund Raising

TENNER FOR A TONNE APPEAL









Diagram created by Paul Reynolds



When the platform walls for the Corwen Central island platform are complete, they will have created a 160 metre long area to be in filled with spoil brought in and compacted. It is estimated that 1,000 tonnes of material will be required to create the platform area at a cost of £10 a tonne, as represented by the layers of red balls in the above diagram. The financing of this aspect of the station development is dependent upon voluntary donations.

Can you spare a Tenner to support the Corwen Central project? If so, please make a donation of £10 to the ‘Tenner for a Tonne’ Appeal : Llangollen Railway Trust Ltd, Corwen Central Railway Development, c/o Mr Paul Bailey, Dolwen, Bryn Eglwys, Corwen, LL21 9LY.

We have now reached half of our £10,000 target to cover the cost of removing the necessary spoil from the Ruthin Branch for our Island Platform Infill BUT STILL NEED ANOTHER £5000 to complete the Platform.
In addition to our "Tenner for a Tonne "Appeal we are now looking for Supporters to sponsor Five Tonnes of Spoil Removal for £50 in return for which they will receive 2 Tickets on our Corwen Central Express (CCE) , A Special Double Headed 8 Coach Express to Corwen's New Station hopefully in Spring 2019.
If you can help then please see the form for details.
Thank you
