My thanks to everyone for your continued interest & support -

Some time ago, I put a call out for pictures of our locomotives in the days before preservation and as a result received an email from Ted Buckley offering his pictures of our locomotives at Barry Scrapyard. Ted has sent through pictures of 48518 and Willington Hall which have been loaded up on to their specific pages on the Archive Website and pictures of Jinty no 7298 (Now moved to the East Lancs Railway) when in Barry Scrapyard and in the Rainhill 150 cavalcade.

These are superb archive pictures and I am very grateful to Ted for allowing me to load them on to the website.

If anyone else has archive pictures of our locomotives and would be willing to let me upload them, please contact me via the link above.

Since Ted’s generous offer, several collections of pictures have been handed over to the SAL Management team for recording and archiving. Most of these have been either prints or slides. It is a slow job to scan them all and file the results, so please be patient.

It is very important to keep Corwen Central in the public eye as funding is still required to complete the project by the end of 2019, as planned. Progress on the construction is steady. The gap in the embankment has been filled and awaits track. Once this is complete, the new station will be connected to the rest of the railway. We then need to get approval from the various authorities to use it for the public. Keep watching the Corwen Development pages for updates.

Happy New Year to Everyone, let’s hope it turns out to be a better year than predicted at the moment!

Due to ill health, I still haven’t been able to sort out suitable replacement software to rejuvinate this website, it is proving more difficult than first thought. I am still trying to separate the Photogallery section and the Locomotive section from the main website and have separate webmasters looking after them. This has proved to be a tortuous path! Both sections will be linked seamlessly to this website once we have upgraded and reloaded it.

As part of the withdrawal from the market, the software suppliers have discontinued the visitor counting system so, unfortunately, no visitor count for 2018.

My webmaster email address remains as: lrarchivewebmaster2@btinternet.com as before.

Many thanks for your continued interest.
