Rheilffordd Corris Railway
Situated just off the A487 between Dolgellau and Machynlleth
Ride in an old fashioned steam train on a journey that is enjoyable for everybody and just right for families. Take a gentle trip down the beautiful Dulas Valley in one of the observation carriages on this family-friendly steam railway. See sheep grazing on the riverside slopes by woodland old and new, with buzzards wheeling overhead. Look into our workshops during the short guided tour of the Railway's head quarters at Maespoeth, and after visit our shop and free museum at Corris. There see original slate-carrying waggons, and the 'chicken' living inside a rescued original Corris Railway carriage. Children can play with 'small world' toys, use a children's playground and try a family quiz. Lucky children might even get to blow the whistle and wave the green flag. Our volunteer drivers, firemen, guards and shop staff are all fully trained enthusiasts for railways and passengers and are always keen to share their 'inside' knowledge. The Railway and Museum are always 'works in progress', so visit us again to see how we are doing.
