Having travelled on this railway seveal times as a child 1958 and as a young father with two children 1960s we had to go again as pensioners. What a lovely few hours travelled to Dolgoch Falls, got off and visited the falls. Got back on and travelled to Nant Gwernol (the end) then back to the Wharf at Towyn. The staff are great and obviously enjoy their work (voluntary)
When we were young we walked from Nant Gwernol up the winch line inclines to the old slate workings with the remains of the old buildings. Wonderful experience.
We have travelled many steam railways including the Jacobite railway from Fort William to Malaig which was very expensive and claims to be the worlds best......they have never been on the Talyllyn Railway or they would be a little more modest.
