Railway Society chairman Richard Foyn said significant progress had been made on a number of fronts by volunteers and partners, after two years of disruption caused by Covid.

He said the first quarter saw a key part of improvements to Corris station completed with a new platform and track layout, which included a traverse to allow locomotives to run around their trains.

Work has continued on an embankment south of Maespoeth Junction which will eventually allow passengers a longer journey along the Dulas Valley

“This part of our work depends on funding and the availability of suitable materials, machinery and qualified operators, so there is inevitably a halting start, but progress has been steady and is satisfactorily visible,” he said.

“All this has been achieved by a small number of volunteers and we would like to welcome more to the ranks.”
