GWILI BOOK COVER WEB

GWILI RAILWAY BOOK LAUNCH, SPECIAL VIP VISIT BY ANNE SIGNOL:

Anne Signol (Author) and her illustrator Scott Artus (Our very own marketing manager and photographer) will be launching their book 'Norris and Gertie Gobstopper on the Gwili Railway.

Books cost £5.00 and you can get a signed copy (limited first edition run of 2000).

All proceeds (100% of profit) goes to Gwili Railway for future projects.

Norris travels to Carmarthen after a successful trip to Llandudno,
to appear in the Victorian Extravaganza. This is the story of Norris the
Pantomime Horse, Gertie Gobstopper the Pantomime Dame and
their adventures travelling through Wales and on the Gwili Railway.

About the author

Anne Signol started the Sigfield Follies, a song and dance troupe,
featuring an actual Norris the Norse character, in order to raise money
for local children's charities. The interest generated in Norris through
these shows inspired Anne Signol to write about his adventures and
assemble them into a show entitled Norris on Broadway.

A Trip Along The Line

Your journey begins at Bronwydd Arms Station, there is a brief pause as you pass through Llwyfan Cerrig Station on your way to the halt stop Danycoed at the end of the line. Here is a good opportunity for a photo stop. You can disembark and watch the steam locomotive uncouple and run round ready to pull the carriages back to Llwyfan Cerrig Station.

Here you can disembark to enjoy this picturesque river side spot, ride on the Miniature Railway, visit the Travelling Post Office and see the display of carriages and wagons at various stages of restoration.

Trains depart from Llwyfan Cerrig Station back to Bronwydd Arms Station so you can stay as long as you please, or do the trip again so you can travel on the steam train and the heritage diesel train.
