    The work on the refurbishment of the DMU fleet at Llynclys carries on. The parcels bay was given a repaint. The two photos, courtesy of Facebook, show one end being prepared with the other already having received the first coat of paint.

    Lenny the cat is a key volunteer at Llynclys! If there is any chance of food or attention he's first in line!

    Winter is the time of year when inside jobs are most sought after, even if that means a deep clean of the smokebox to allow the inspection of all joints.

    The Barclay is getting ready for an exciting 2020. Have you made plans yet to come and see what we are up to??

    The work continues at Weston as we go for a temporary link up to the main line to be able to bring down materials from Oswestry.

    We are planning another track walk on the 28th March. If you fancy coming to see the work we have done and the potential of the line, keep that date in mind. More details soon.
