THE Talyllyn Railway (TR) has bought two cottages in Frankwell Street, Tywyn.
The £240,000 purchase includes land known as the ‘Orchard’, next to the railway’s Tywyn Pendre works site. The ‘Orchard’ site can be accessed by a narrow drive not part of the sale, and is bounded by houses and the railway.
