THE Talyllyn Railway (TR) has bought two cottages in Frankwell Street, Tywyn.
The £240,000 purchase includes land known as the ‘Orchard’, next to the railway’s Tywyn Pendre works site. The ‘Orchard’ site can be accessed by a narrow drive not part of the sale, and is bounded by houses and the railway.
The land is subject to planning restrictions, but its acquisition potentially opens opportunities related to the railway’s proposals to redevelop its engineering facilities at Pendre, and studies into constructing a new TR engineering project in Pendre Enterprise Park
