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.

Done loads of railways but this one is a gem. Small, friendly and quiet. My kids, 5 and 3 loved it. Eventhough it's a short ride it's beautiful scenery in a comfortable carriage and an hours round trip is just right. At £15 for a...More
This was the last railway (in Wales) on our to do list. We were, therefore, pleased to find this railway open when we were in the area. There is so little parking that it is best to find alternative arrangements. We parked in the Corris...More

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 in April, May, June and September 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.
