As the Llangollen Railway head towards re-opening the line to Corwen Central, they have launched a brand new appeal.

The new appeal comes as the team conclude the building of the island platform and loop line. It aims to fill in the famous gap in the embankment.

Originally bulldozed through in 2013 to provide alternative access to the Corwen Sewage Farm. Recently it offered the route for the Water Tower and Signal box cabin to be brought in for installation.

With this now in the history books, early in 2019, the Llangollen Railway will be looking for a contractor to deliver and compact the spoil to reinstate the embankment.

The estimated volume is 9,000 cubic metres, requiring 11,250 tonnes of spoil at a cost of £10,000.

Donations to this Appeal are welcomed, and more information can be found by downloading the form or sending off a donation to Mr Paul Bailey, ‘Dolwen’, Bryn Eglwys, Corwen LL21 9LY
