Corwen Development

Llangollen Railway Trust

Appeal for Corwen Extension

The 2 ½ mile push to Corwen is now within sight of Dyrain Corwen East Station and our target is now to have the first train operating in the Spring 2014.. 

The construction of the Railway from Carrog to Corwen Phase 1 including the temporary platform has been estimated to cost £1.25 million and although some invaluable grant funding has been obtained from the Welsh Assembly Government and Cyfenter, the Railway still needs to contribute from its own fund raising activities. 

Phase 2, the construction of a station complex at Corwen remains the longer term objective of the railway and any funds left over from the Phase 1 section will be retained for the future completion of this project.

How you can help:-

1. Make a "one off" donation. If you are a UK taxpayer then by signing a Grant Aid declaration the government will add 25p for every pound donated.

2. Make a regular monthly donation.

3. Purchase of shares –The minimum value share purchase required is £50. Share Application Forms are available by visiting or contact Llangollen Railway Office on 01978 860979.

4. Purchase a commemorative Edmondson Style Ticket that will help purchase specific materials needed to complete the project. These tickets are donations and sell at £5,£10, £15 or £20 each.
