SATURDAY 4th & SUNDAY 5th SEPTEMBERSPECIAL GALA WEEKEND including a visit from Corris Railway No. 4 to celebrate it's 100th Birthday.A special gala weekend celebrating the 100th Birthday of Corris Railway No. 4 and featuring steam passenger services between Corris Station and Maespoeth Junction on both days between 11:00am and 4:00pm.
The planned formation of the train services will have the Corris Railway No. 7 and Corris Railway No. 4 operating as a "top-and tail" with one loco at each end of the formation.
Subject to Covid restrictions and availability of volunteers the locomotive and carriage sheds at Maespoeth Junction will be open to let you see carriages and waggons under construction and repair and there is plenty of time to explore our Museum at Corris and browse the shop. For lunch, if required, why not visit the “Slater’s Arms” which is 200 yards from Corris station and is in the “Good Beer Guide”.

We try to ensure that steam trains run as advertised. The Corris Railway may have to cancel, alter or suspend the published timetable with or without notice, or to use a diesel locomotive in the unlikely event of a breakdown or crew shortage. It accepts no liability for any loss, inconvenience, disappointment or delay caused by this.

  •   Great train 🚂 you could hop on and off at the various towns and explore. Plenty to do on the way for both a young child and a tween. Great views from the train.

  •   Well worth a visit is the small Corris Railway - with great views even if the valley is bathed in the usual welsh liquid sunshine. If you’re keen, you can even jump up and have a look around the can of No 7...

Your Railway for a Day

Would you and a small group of similarly-minded friends like to spend a few hours trying your hands at driving steam, diesel and battery powered electric locomotives on part of the oldest narrow gauge railway in Mid Wales? We can offer the Experience Day on days when normal services are not operating (see www.corris.co.uk for timetable arrangements) . Prices are £360 for a diesel day or £450 for a steam day. Maximum 6 participants.

Small Railway with Big Ambitions

We have big projects on the go: extending the line southwards to Tan y Coed Forest Amenity Site, re-developing Corris Station, and building a second new steam locomotive. Visitors can see parts of the new loco and four replica Victorian carriages in our workshops. Also see a model of the proposed new station at Corris in the museum.

Please help us to develop the Railway by slipping a donation into one of the collecting boxes at Corris and Maespoeth Stations. Every penny counts. Thank you.

Track our work in progress at www.corris.co.uk – updated most weeks. Follow us on Twitter & Facebook.

    I would like to book three tickets for the first train out of Corris at 11.00am Sunday 17th June 2018, to ensure we get a place on that train. I could not find a facility for booking on-line on your website. I should be most grateful for you earliest reply, by return if possible. Many thanks, CHRIS G.
