Sights and sounds of Fairbourne Railway near Barmouth


A narrow gauge steam railway in Gwynedd has started a "crisis fund" to try to avoid job losses.

Managers at the Fairbourne Railway, near Barmouth, say it is currently losing £40,000 a year.

The debt used to be covered by donations from railway enthusiast Prof Tony Atkinson but he died a few months ago.

Mangers say they hope to avoid making redundancies but one member of staff has already left.

Watch some of the sights and sounds of the railway, which is two miles long (3.2km).
