"When the Corris Railway closed in 1948 there was no way of knowing that a small group of young and enthusiastic volunteers would transform the situation and reverse the closure process in the years to come.
Much has been achieved by the Corris Railway Society towards the resurrection of this iconic and much loved line.
This title details the story of the line from the days of operation right up to the present day in 2015 with the addition of new diesel locomotive No 11 and the completion of the exquisite Corris Coach No 22.".
This latest and most excellent book from Gwyn Briwnant Jones contains an engaging mix of miscellany based on the Corris, and includes quite a number of recent photos.

The Corris Railway was the first Narrow Gauge railway in Mid-Wales.
Built originally in 1859 as a 2’ 3" gauge horse-hauled tramroad,
steam locomotives arrived in 1878 and passengers were carried from 1883 to 1930.
The Railway closed in 1948 and was dismantled soon afterwards.
The Corris Railway Museum opened in 1970 and passenger services recommenced in 2002, with regular steam-hauled services
returning in 2005, operated by volunteer members of the Corris Railway Society.
Trains run on the days shown in the Calendar to the right of this screen. The museum is open on these days between 10:30am
