Donations flood in from across world for crisis-hit railway

* The appeal's Facebook page showing donations of over £34,000.

Almost £10,000 has been contributed by supporters worldwide since the announcement that Llangollen Railway had been plunged into a financial crisis at the start of this month. 

On March 1 the board of Llangollen Railway PLC asked its bank to call in receivers after became insolvent to the tune of about £350,000 and could not legally continue trading.

An update on the railway's unofficial Facebook page shows that nearly £10K has been contributed by concerned supporters worldwide.

Pledges of money have come from as far away as Australia and the USA.

A post on the page says: "Since our last post on Monday March 1 donations to the Full Steam Ahead Appeal have grown from £25,000 to £34,500 plus Gift Aid contributions. 

"Llangollen Railway Trust (LRT) would like to thank everyone who has commented, shared the post and donated to the Appeal. We are extremely grateful for your ongoing support.

"If you are in a position to make a donation please visit the link below, this provides full details of how you can continue to support us. 

"These include bank transfers, posting a cheque or making an online donation which can be for a one off amount or a set monthly figure. If you are unable to donate at this time a share to others you feel could support us would also be appreciated.

"Other money has been arriving by cheque and bank transfers to LRT."
