AIA restoration grant will bring steam to Cynheidre again

The Llanelli & Mynydd Mawr Railway are very pleased to announce that they have been awarded a grant of £18,000 towards the cost of restoring the 1906 vintage Industrial Saddle Tank locomotive ‘Desmond’ to working order for use on the line at Cynheidre. The award has been made by the Association for Industrial Archaeology who promote the study and appreciation of industrial archaeology. The grant should allow for the rapid completion of a project to furnish the L&MMR with a suitable steam locomotive for use on open days at its site at Cynheidre near Llanelli. ‘Desmond’ is owned by the railway and has a life long association with South Wales, having spent its working days at the Orb Steelwork
