  •   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.

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.
