Hi all, In 2018, the Gwili Railway will be celebrating it's 40th anniversary in the preservation era. To mark this milestone, there are a number of special events coming up, throughout the year... --------------------------------- 25th March 2017 - Anniversary of the first train in preservation A special ‘Sunday Lunch’ dining train to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first train in the preservation era - as close to the original date as we can! 1200 ex Bronwydd Arms - pre-booked tickets and invited guests only. March 30th/31st - ‘Gwili 40 - The Opening Act’ A family-based event to kick off our year, over the Easter weekend. All visitors will receive a special goody-bag, whilst a busy timetable will be in operation. "Moorbarrow", "Welsh Guardsman" and D2178 will be in operation - including the return of the Cwmdwyfran Shuttle (a la 1978), as well as a double-headed non-stop run to end the day. Normal fares apply. April 21st - ‘Gwili 40 - The Diesel Day’ Our home-based diesel fleet will take to the stage on this day, with the first advertised diesel-hauled trains to Abergwili Junction in the preservation era. Normal fares apply. More details to follow shortly... June 9th/10th - ‘Gwili 40 - The Party’ Our biggest event of the year! A two day event to celebrate our 40th Anniversary in style. An intensive timetable will run on both days, with plenty to see and do. Come and be part of a memorable weekend. October 6th - ‘Gwili 40 - The Finale’ Our traditional ‘end of season’ gala. Expect a busy timetable (featuring both passenger and goods trains, as well as double-heading), as well as other attractions. ------------- See attached 'Gwili 40' leaflet for more details. Hope to see you in West Wales at some point during 2018, to help celebrate the Gwili Railway's 40th anniversary. Thanks, Phil.
