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.
