Fund Raising

It is always worth repeating the warning regarding the photography of trains on the Carrog to Corwen length. All the photos of trains on the running line have been taken from the footpath on the A5 road, which runs very closely with the railway for most of its length, NOT from the trackside.


A word of caution is appropriate though! The A5 is fast, busy, twisty and heavily loaded; and there are no safe parking places.


The safe parking places are at the Llidiart-y-Parc (east) end, about ¼ mile to the west where there is a large layby; and at the Corwen (west) end where there are plenty of parking places in the town carparks.


In between, it is necessary to walk. The footpath is on the railway side, but not particularly wide. The A5 is already prone to accidents - please don’t add any more!

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.
