The main buildings of Corris station were demolished in 1968 leaving only the adjacent railway stable block standing, and these buildings – badly in need of maintenance – were acquired, along with a short section of trackbed leading southwards. In 1970 the first part of the building was opened as the Corris Railway Museum. A short length of “demonstration” track was laid in 1971.
During the 1970s the Society undertook lengthy negotiations with the relevant authorities to establish the requirements for re-opening the line for passengers, while steadily building up funds and equipment. A new Corris Railway Company, reviving the original name, was incorporated to act as the Society’s trading and operating arm, while the Society achieved charitable status. The Museum was extended as more of the building was returned to satisfactory condition and today houses a shop and cafe plus a display of exhibits of Corris Railway rolling stock and historical items.
