Year of celebration in 2015 for the Talyllyn Railway [Daily Post]

Date: 27/12/2014

An historic narrow gauge railway will celebrate a notable anniversary in 2015 with a series of special events. The scenic, seven mile Talyllyn Railway from Tywyn to Abergynolwyn was opened in 1866 to carry slate from the quarries to Tywyn, and was the first narrow gauge railway in Britain authorised by Parliament to carry passengers using steam haulage in July 1865.
