Gala Day


The Corris Railway will hold its third Spring Gala Day on Sunday May 27th with a variety of trains in action between Corris station and Maespoeth Junction.

Passenger and van train services will be handled by “Tattoo” 0-4-2ST number 7, Ruston Hornsby diesel number 6, following winter work which included tyre re-profiling and journals being trued at the Vale of Rheidol, and Orenstein and Koppel diesel number 11. The first locomotive to work during the revival of the Corris, Simplex number 5 “Alan Meaden”, will head some demonstration works trains and Clayton battery electric number 9 “Aberllefenni” is planned to be found in its usual role of carriage shed shunter at Maespoeth Junction.

Visitors will be able see components for steam locomotive number 10 (currently under construction at the workshops of Alan Keef as fund raising permits) at Maespoeth Junction. Beyond Maespoeth Junction the extended section of track, the first step on the southern extension of the line, will be in use giving passengers some chances to ride on this part of the Corris Railway.

There will also be demonstration gravity trains but travel in these is limited to members of the Corris Railway Society.
