Corris Railway Society
Corris, Machynlleth, Wales - The Corris Railway was the first Narrow Gauge railway in Mid-Wales. Built originally in 1859 as a 2' 3" gauge horse-hauled tramroad, steam locomotives arrived in 1878 and passengers were carried from 1883 to 1930. The Railway closed in 1948 and was dismantled soon afterwards.

The Corris Railway Museum opened in 1970 and passenger services recommenced in 2002, with regular steam-hauled services returning in 2005, operated by volunteer members of the Corris Railway Society.

Trains run on the days shown in the Calendar to the right of this screen. The museum is open on these days between 10:30am and 5:30pm and trains leave Corris station on the hour from 11:00am until 4:00pm.

Deltic Preservation Society Ltd
The Deltic Preservation Society Ltd is the largest diesel locomotive preservation society in the United Kingdom, and owns three of the six surviving Deltics. A total of 22 Deltics were built for British Rail in 1961/62, for use on the East Coast Main Line out of Kings Cross. By the late 1970s, they were being replaced by new Inter-City 125 trains, and were gradually phased out, the last examples being taken out of service at the beginning of 1982.

In 1977, many people realised that the future introduction of High Speed Trains on the East Coast Main Line meant the days of the Deltics were numbered. A small group of enthusiasts decided on a long-term aim to preserve a working Deltic locomotive, and formed the Deltic Preservation Society in order to raise funds to do this.

They were so successful that, following withdrawal from British Rail in 1982, membership had reached more than 1500, and the society was able to purchase not one but two locomotives, Alycidon (55009) and Royal Highland Fusilier (55019). Following completion of the sale, the two locos were moved from Doncaster Works, where they had been stored, to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway in August 1982 and put into service immediately. A third example, Tulyar (55015), based at the Midland Railway Centre, was added in 1986 when it was purchased from Peter Sansom.

Since then, our locomotives have made appearances over the country, and have hauled trains on a wide variety of private lines including the the East Lancashire, Great Central, Keighley & Worth Valley, Llangollen, Mid-Hants, Nene Valley, Severn Valley, and West Somerset Railways.

Devon Railway Centre
Devon - Devon Railway Centre is primarily the work of Matthew Giquel with help from a small, but dedicated, group of volunteers. The site was taken over from Devon County Council in February 1997 after 34 years of dereliction and decay. Our operating two-foot gauge railway provides a journey of approximately half a mile. The line is set out like an industrial railway complete with steep gradients and sharp curves, some down to forty feet in radius.
