Llangollen railway: Funding bid to finish steam project [BBC News]

Date: 01/03/2019

After 45 years of building a railway line between two Denbighshire towns, volunteers say they need £10,000 to finish the last stretch. Ten miles (16km) of the Llangollen steam railway line has been rebuilt between Llangollen and Corwen, with a platform created at the end. But there remains a gap in the embankment between the new station and the rest of the line. The gap was created to allow access to a sewage farm and must now be filled. When this is done, steam trains will be able to travel down the full length of the track.
