Corris No.7 visits the Talyllyn

further report from that mentioned only yesterday here is the news and all the details.

Corris Railway No. 7, their recently built 0-4-2 ST locomotive, No.7, will be visiting the Talyllyn Railway during October. The Talyllyn’s rare gauge of 2’3” is only shared by the Corris and this will be the first time ever that there has been a visiting steam locomotive to the TR. The Talyllyn bought the two remaining Corris locomotives which survived its closure in 1948 and they have been working on the TR since 1952. During the Gala No.7 will operate a Corris railway train using the CR coach and brake van preserved on the TR. It will also doublehead a special train with one of the former CR locomotives (Nos.3 & 4) and the timetabled service trains will be operated by the former CR locomotives.
On Saturday evening No.7 and the CR train will be illuminated for photography at Wharf station, where the café will be open for meals and drinks. There will be a film show of old TR and hopefully Corris films.

One and two day gala tickets are available from Wharf Station. These cover travel on the various special trains as well as the TR service trains.
