Welsh Highland Railway Project

North Wales - The Welsh Highland Railway Project is a title that will be familiar to anyone with a passing interest in the railway. It was the name given to a website that was set up by the late Dr Ben Fisher with the intention of following the reconstruction of the Welsh Highland Railway. The website became the 'official' provider of news, information and announcements associated with the reconstruction.

What this website did was to record every aspect of the day to day rebuilding of the railway to such an extent that it is now a significant historical record of that reconstruction. It also recorded the numerous events, galas and celebratory occasions of those reconstruction years.

Ben kept the website updated on a regular basis until his sudden, and untimely, death in August 2009. Following the sad loss of Ben, his family felt that this record should not be lost to the wider world. This was a likely scenario as the website was very kindly hosted courtesy of Bangor University where Ben worked. In order to ensure its survival it was offered to Cymdeithas Rheilffordd Eryri to be part of their (new) society website and where updating of reconstruction progress could continue.
