Yeo’s Wheelsets Appeal

One of the mainstays of our operational fleet Yeo, has developed a very serious and unexpected engineering defect, requiring all 3 wheelsets to be replaced, before it can run again.


 As Yeo will be needed daily to fulfil its place in this year’s peak timetable, it is important we get this repair completed without delay. We have identified a commercial engineering company who can carry out the work quickly and to the required standard, the cost will be up to £10,000.

Ways you can contribute to the above appeal:

Standing Order: Please download form here

Cheque: Please make cheques payable to: The North Wales Coast Light Railway Limited  and send to: Fairbourne Railway, Beach Road, Fairbourne, Gwynedd, LL38 2EX.



  With the Railway still suffering financially from the effects of the covid-19 restrictions, we have no alternative than to ask for your help and appeal for donations towards the cost of new wheelsets.

With very many thanks on behalf of all the Trustees and supporters of

Fairbourne Railway; your help is really appreciated.
