Talyllyn Railway general manager Lorraine Simkiss said: “I think that people wanted to do something to mark the occasion rather than just watching it on TV and what better way than to enjoy a steam train ride on the world’s first preserved.”
When Talyllyn Railway Preservation Society was formed in 1951, it became the first preserved railway to be owned and run by volunteers
The railway continues running daily services throughout the summer season.
