On Saturday the Penrhyn Quarry Railway issued a statement on their Facebook page, this confirmed previous rumours that the railway was to move from its current site.

It is not yet clear if any planned services will still run as per the timetable. We have reached out to the Railway for official confirmation but have not yet received a reply, so if you are planning on visiting please check.

We hope that the Penrhyn Quarry Railway manages to find a new home, and continue the excellent work that they have achieved so far in such a short time. You can see a video of our last visit to the Railway below.

The statement posted read as follows…

“Dear all.
Thank you for your patience for this statement.
It is true that the Penrhyn team are moving from felin Fawr, the railway is not being evicted.
Over the past few weeks it has become clear that the railway could not continue at Felin Fawr due to circumstances beyond our control.
We will be issuing a further statement once all of our supporters have been contacted and informed of what is going on.
We would like to thank all the railways and individuals who have helped us and are continuing to do so.
We are currently following a few leads for the future.
More to come next week.
Many thanks to all who have supported us”

 

  • Why did the penrhyn railway have to act with so much cloak and dagger? why cant they tell the truth as to what happened with the mysterious exit?
