Weekly Exhibit

This Sunday marked the anniversary of the opening of the Nant Gwernol Extension on the Talyllyn Railway on 22nd May 1976. One of the issues that needed to be addressed was the fact that the original 1865 Act, only covered the line to a point just East of Abergynolwyn Station. To cover the line from the end of the Statutory Railway to Nant Gwernol, an application was made for a light railway order which was granted fifty years ago in 1972. The Light Railway Order is shown below, and our post from last year, the 45th anniversary, shows other items connected with the opening.
