The Blaenau Ffestiniog & Trawsfynydd Railway are looking for volunteers to join their working party on the 15th of July 2017 at their current Maentwrog Road site where the railway are continuing to clear vegetation (bushes and trees) from the former railway.

Maentwrog Road is the current site where the working parties are currently working towards clearing. Maentwrog Road Yard is where in the past saw the transportation of explosives from Penrhyndeudraeth after Barmouth Bridge closed to heavy freight.

Work Parties are organised approximately once a month with the next one on the 15th July 2017. Work does vary along the six and half mile branch line. Volunteers are to be ideally physically fit and able to work under supervision, a safe attitude to working is essential.

The Blaenau Ffestiniog & Trawsfynydd Railway will also be launching their new website on the 21st July 2017, details of which can be found by clicking here
