2016 Season

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT SUPPORTED THE YEO FIREBOX APPEAL. THE TARGET HAS NOW BEEN REACHED.

NEW APPEAL

DUAL GAUGE POINT FUND

The Fairbourne Railway wants a truly memorable Gala in 2016 to celebrate the centenary of steam on the Fairbourne Railway. We would like to invite some of the most iconic locomotives from the railway’s past to visit us, but to do this we need to be able to offer them secure shed space. We are planning to extend the 15” line back through the station to enable locos to access the shed but to do this a dual 12.25/15” gauge point is needed. Once this is in place we will permanently have the ability to securely store visiting locos undercover.

The problem is, due to the complicated nature of these points, it has been decided to have them made by an outside contractor. The estimated cost is between £7000 - £8000. We already have nearly £3000 in the fund but we urgently need to raise the reminder.

You can donate to the “Dual Gauge Point Fund” by sending a Cheque to the Railway or visit: www.fairbournerailway.com & use PayPal (no PayPal account needed). You can also download the “Standing Order Mandate Form” Please remember to Gift Aid your donation.

Welcome to the Fairbourne Railway

The Fairbourne Railway has been running from Fairbourne village to the mouth of the Mawddach Estuary, connecting with the ferry to Barmouth for over 100 years. It started as a two foot gauge horse-drawn tramway which was then converted to a 15 inch gauge railway in 1916. The line in 1984 was completely re built to a 12.25 inch gauge.
