Corris Railway is advising customers to hurry and pre-book limited tickets for Santa Specials on December 10 and 11.

The Santa Special will be running every 90 minutes from 11am to 3.30pm on both days and tickets can be pre-booked through the railway’s website .

Meanwhile, progress continues with the railway’s new Falcon 0-4-2ST steam locomotive at Alan Keef Ltd. Buffers made by Corris Railway Society’s volunteers at Maespoeth Junction workshops have been fitted to the front and rear of locomotive number 10.

The volunteers have also been busy continuing work on a new clerestory carriage which the new locomotive will eventually head and have fitted sprung buffers to the railway’s ex-Trecwn vans and installed a slate roof to a heritage carriage shed.

Fundraising continues for locomotive number 10 which is scheduled to be operating at Corris next year.

The railway’s Christmas cards and 2023 calendar can be purchased from the online shop at
