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.

    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.
