The Glyn Valley Tramway Trust is a registered charity working towards the recreation of this quaint little tramway in Chirk and the Ceiriog Valley.
Part of the historic Glyn Valley Tramway - dubbed the 'Little bit of Heaven Railway' is being restored by volunteers from the Trust who want to recreate the tramway as it would have been in its heyday.
Chirk 'the Gateway to Wales' is a pretty little town situated on the edge of the County of Wrexham, and at the start of the beautiful Ceiriog Valley. Now the focus of the Trust's endeavours to recreate the tramway, Chirk is set to see steam trains running once again through its picturesque scenery.
Preserving the heritage of the Glyn Valley Tramway
The Trust continues to work very hard on many aspects of the restoration project and there have been a number of important developments in recent months.
At its Board Meeting held at the Hand Hotel on 26th February 2015, the Board of the GVTT unanimously adopted a resolution to set the gauge for the section of the restored tramway for which it is responsible to the ORIGINAL GAUGE of TWO FOOT FOUR AND A HALF INCHES.
Physical work on the restoration has commenced with the removal of trees on the Chirk Station to Ty Ririd section of the track bed. The Trust organises regular work parties which take place every month. Details are shown in the ‘working parties’ section of this website.
