The Talyllyn Railway is a historic narrow-gauge steam railway, set in the beautiful Mid-Wales countryside. Running from Tywyn to Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol, the line passes the delightful Dolgoch Falls and there are excellent forest walks at Nant Gwernol.

No. 6 Photographic Charters - 9th to 12th March 2014
For four days in March 2014, No.6 is reverting to a livery as close as possible to its original colours for four days of photographic charters. The work has been undertaken by volunteers at Pendre Works and all proceeds from the event will go to the Talyllyn Railway.
No.6 was built new in 1918 by Andrew Barclay for the Airservice Constructional Corps, working at Calshot Spit near Southampton between 1921 and 1945. After four years in storage, the locomotive was sold into industrial service and was presented to the Talyllyn Railway by Abelson & Company in 1953, when it was re-gauged to 2’3”. It has been a regular and reliable performer on the Talyllyn Railway for some sixty years, though has not been in a livery favoured by photographers for some time, as it now frequently takes on a more popular identity as a character from the Awdry series of childrens’ stories.
The locomotive will revert to its more well-known identity as children's character Duncan for the main season. Any members wishing to join the charters can download information and a booking form by clicking on this link. DOWNLOAD BOOKING FORM.

I'm not sure it could be improved, it's always been a professional, very friendly and enjoyable experience. Thank you.
