Num­bers up at talyl­lyn

Steam Railway (UK) - - Steam News -

With pas­sen­ger fig­ures up 4% on the pre­vi­ous year, there has been plenty to cel­e­brate at the Talyl­lyn Rail­way. The 2ft 3in gauge line re­ports that over 45,000 peo­ple have trav­elled on the rail­way over the last 12 months, “the high­est num­ber for sev­eral years.” The news fol­lows a suc­cess­ful Santa sea­son, with book­ings over 60% up on 2015, and two ex­tra trains hav­ing to be added to cope. Talyl­lyn Rail­way Gen­eral Man­ager Tracey Parkin­son says: “This is most en­cour­ag­ing, and is the re­sult of some new mar­ket­ing ini­tia­tives which we in­tend to de­velop in the com­ing years. “The timetable for this year in­cludes a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of ex­tra trains to cope with the an­tic­i­pated in­crease in traf­fic.”
