The Corris Railway
The Corris Railway was the first narrow gauge railway in Mid-Wales, beginning in 1859 as a 2'3'' gauge horse-hauled tram road carrying local slate. Steam arrived in 1878 and a passenger service operated from 1883 to 1930. The Railway closed in 1948 and was dismantled soon afterwards. A Preservation Society reinstated part of the original line so that passenger services could recommence in 2002 after a break of 72 years. We have on sale second hand railway books, videos and some model railway items, new Corris Railway items and books, children's toys and books and range of Thomas the Tank items.
