Screen Shot 2014-02-04 at 16.29.01Talyllyn Railway is thanking the community located around the line by holding a special ‘Locals’ Day’ on Saturday the 15th of February.

Fares of £5 for adults and £2 for children for a day rover ticket are being offered to local residents as a thank you for their support for the line over the past year.

Trains will depart Tywyn Wharf at 10.30am and 2pm on the 15th, which will be available for all, with the special fares for local residents. The recently refurbished Tywyn Wharf café will also be open with meals and snacks available.

The railway will continue to run trains until Saturday, February 22 when the line will close for engineering work to be carried out. Services will then re-commence on Sundays from March 9, with daily running resuming on Sunday, April 6.

General manager Chris Price said: “We are very conscious that we are part of a thriving community in and around Tywyn and so we want to take this opportunity to say thank you for all the help and support that we have received during the past year.

“This has been a difficult time for the area with employment issues and storm damage to contend with, and we want to play our part in helping its economic development.

“A recent estimate suggested that the railway contributes over £2 million annually to the local area and we would like to see this increase substantially with growing visitor numbers contributing to the overall prosperity of the area.”
