This is the old Cambrian Railways Society website. For current information about heritage trains in Oswestry, visit

This old website is being kept alive alive personally by the webmaster for several reasons, including:
# It provides a record online of developments that would otherwise be lost - an important phase which included bringing the once rival Cambrian Railways Society and Cambrian Railways Trust together under the umbrella Cambrian Heritage Railways (CHR);
# It contains information about the Cambrian Railways Museum and the rolling stock at Oswestry which has hitherto been omitted from the modern day CHR website; and
# In memory of the late Alun Evans, the webmaster’s brother, who worked tirelessly to clear the line of undergrowth and documented & recorded so much of the railway’s developments, inspiring many people to support the project in the process.

>>...About Us...<<<

....We are the Cambrian Railways Society, based in the Welsh-border market town of Oswestry. Formed in 1972, the group has spent the intervening period gathering an invaluable collection of artefacts from railways in the former Cambrian Railways Company (CR) area, which once covered a vast chunk of mid & north Wales, together with the Shropshire borderland; and ensuring the survival of many more. We have established a registered museum in the last remaining CR goods shed, which dates from the 1860s, and have also transformed Oswestry South Signalbox from a derelict eyesore to a fully functioning educational facility. Work is currently underway to return steam to the Oswestry area - our flagship steam loco 'Oliver Veltom' is under overhaul. The society is also working towards re-opening a section of the famous Tanat Valley Railway from Llynclys Junction to Blodwell, and up the Nantmawr Branch.
