Affiliated Railways

The W&LLR is affiliated with the Puffing Billy Railway in Australia and the Alishan Forest Railway and Taiwan Sugar Corporation in Taiwan.

Alishan Forest Railway

The agreement with the Alishan Forest Railway was signed in September 2017 by our Chairman, Steve Clews, Lord Faulkner, President of the Heritage Railway Association, and Hwa-Ching Lin, Director General of the Taiwan Forestry Bureau.

The railway is famous for being the highest narrow- gauge line in Asia, with the steepest gradient and for its distinctive Shay locomotives.

Taiwan Sugar Corporation

Our agreement with the Taiwan Sugar Corporation (TSC) was signed in December 2018 at the annual Sugar Culture Festival in Taiwan, for which we loaned our locomotive no.8 ‘Dougal,’ to the delight of Taiwanese enthusiasts, as seen here.
