Tywyn Trip Update

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Various officials, including engineers, are still looking into the main surprise of the day, to see if it is feasible.

Those who decide to make their own way to Tywyn can arrive from midday and lunch in the café or bring your own picnic.

You can look round the museum and our train will arrive, replenish its fuel supplies and leave for tour of Pendre works around 1.30. Once there you will be able to see how the overhaul of ‘Dolgoch’, the first engine to haul a train on a preserved railway is progressing, as it should be in the final stages.

The train will then leave to give participants a complete round trip arriving back in Tywyn. Please fill out the booking form and send payment by 1st March 2011. Forms can be found at or inside the October and January editions of the society’s internal magazine Where The Rainbow Ends.

Members day to Tywyn

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

There have been several discussions at committee meetings about holding another ALRS trip out after the enjoyable day we all had at Leighton Buzzard in April 2008. (see the gallery section for photos of that day)

Recently an invitation to attend the Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway during its 50th year of operation during September was taken up at short notice by a few members.

We have negotiated with the Talyllyn Railway to charter a train for ALRS members in April 2011;  the 60th year of railway preservation per se, as for those who didn’t know, it all started there.

The confirmed date is Saturday 16th April.

The plan is, the chartered bus will leave Clay Cross, (approx 8.30) with an additional pick up in Alfreton to take members from the Ashover area there; you will of course be able to make your own way there if you prefer. There will be time to look around the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum based in Tywyn as well as time to explore the engineering headquarters at Pendre. Then a full trip up and down this lovely line.

We are in discussions to see if we can have a little surprise or two in store for participants who choose to join us.

Members Day Arranged

Monday, February 25th, 2008

A day for members to meet, spend time, share and enjoy dreams and aspirations has been arranged at the Leighton Buzzard Railway in April 2008.

Of course the loco for our train will be Baldwin 4-6-0T No 778, courtesy of the Greensand Railway Museum Trust. This should be a very exciting day and a chance to see a live Baldwin in action!
