    You can find the TR 1865 Act on the government site - legislation.gov.uk/ukla/Vict/28-29/315/pdfs/ukla_18650315_en.pdf. The restriction on gauge is in Clause/Section 23.

    Hiya! Just making it clear that the appeal is ongoing. I think you're referring to the donations wall applicants?

    In terms of updates, there are updates happening on FB, and there is now someone taking over the Twitter page too, so there will be some updates here as well.

    As for the GVTT YouTube channel, there are several films well in the works for the YT channel, with a couple of them finished. However, even though there is a lot of great work happening on site, there's more to what we're doing here that requires more then just an update video of all the changes. Also, coming up with a complete film when very little is being completed on the same day or within the same week, doesn't really make for wholesome content. There is also filming going on for a pilot episode of a TV series, which features the GVTT rebuild at Chirk quite heavily, so we want to make sure we are getting the content we need for both, and logistically, it's quite a challenge. And oh my word there's so much editing!! Haha!
    I want these films for us to be more than just a "look what we've achieved today" format. The team here is amazing, and I'm super proud of what the team are doing here. I want to make sure the films reflect that. Fewer films, but better more wholesome content.

    I guess I'll just add for now, rest assured, video updates are coming! :)

    Are those "patients" the ones you have borrowed from a mental asylum to help with the tracklaying...? (Sorry, I don't normally making fun of other people's spelling but couldn't resist on this one! I'll get my coat........)

    A short film of the Glyn Valley Tramway Trust's 150th anniversary event. An amazing achievement by the GVTT team, and there's still so much more to come!
    Full 150th event film coming soon, so subscribe to our YouTube channel for more update films! [​IMG]
