Dear Readers,
It gives me great pleasure to announce that the opening of the Abergwili Junction Extension has been set for SUNDAY 2nd JULY. Yes that's right after many years of hard work we are off to Carmarthen!

May I on behalf of the Board give thanks to all the volunteers, supporters, staff, shareholders and members who have contributed to the extension effort . It represents an outstanding and magnificent achievement and is a tribute to the hard work, determination and persistence of all those concerned. We hope that you will all join in the celebrations. It isn't every day that the Gwili grows in length by another 70%!
The first public day on the Sunday will be preceded by an invited guest day on Saturday 1st July. More details will follow about both days soon, but for now the main points for Sunday 2nd are-

• Peak Timetable
• two engines in steam (subject to availability)
• One train top-and-tail service
• KBU (bar) on the train
• the first arrival at Abergwili will see a banner ceremony
• We hope that pre-booked tickets will be available but this is TBC

We can now look forward to this very happy event and a weekend of enjoyment and celebration.

We have a magnificent new addition to the railway and I urge you all to enjoy the moment and come and ride on the new line. This is a seminal moment and one that the Directors hope will see the railway going from strength to strength.

Best Wishes to all,
Matt Bowen
Extension Director
