NWMES Secures Grants from Conwy County Borough Council and Llandudno Town Council

 

The Society have recently been successful in securing grants of £10,000 from CCBC's 'Local Community Regeneration Project/Capital Fund' and £5,000 from Llandudno Town Council. The grant from CCBC is to assist the Society in the completion of the second phase of  track development at our West Shore site. The overall project costs including match funding in the form of volunteer labour by Society members and various member donations is in the region of £22,000.

 

Completion of phase 2 will see a  track circuit of approximately  1,000 ft in length with the creation of locomotive preparation (Steaming) bays, signaling and appropriate earthworks. It is hoped to complete the basic work in time to commence  public train rides at Easter. The completion of this phase will enable the Society to give the public an enhanced experience of riding behind both electric and steam locomotives on 'The West Shore Miniature Railway'.

 

Llandudno Town Council's Grant is to go towards the purchase of new passenger carrying rolling stock to replace our existing 20yr+ old riding trucks and also towards purchasing an electric locomotive in time for our summer public carrying operations.

 

The  Society are tremendously greatful for the continuing support given by our local Councillers to our enterprise.
