Our aim is to assemble a collection of railway vehicles to form a suitably sized Victorian passenger train that would have run in Wales. This will give the present-day public the chance to experience train travel as it would have been over a hundred twenty years ago.
The Charity came into formal existence in 2009 as an amalgamation of a number of privately owned projects.
In 2010 The GVCG became the owner of TVR 220 after it transferred from the Brynteg School Railway Preservation Group. Pupils from the school had been responsible for its initial restoration in 1988.
Then in 2013 after 12 months of negotiations the GVCG became the official custodian of Taff Vale Railway No.28, the last surviving Welsh built steam locomotive. After it was placed on a 3 year loan by the National Railway Museum in York.
The Group would be interested to hear of any other similar vehicles that either could be rescued or could be used to donate parts to repair the ones we have to traffic.
