Here's an interesting fact:

World's First Preserved Railway: The Talyllyn Railway is often recognized as the world's first preserved railway. It was saved from closure by a group of railway enthusiasts led by Sir Haydn Jones in 1951. This early preservation effort inspired the establishment of many other heritage railways worldwide. The success of the Talyllyn Railway played a pivotal role in the heritage railway movement, demonstrating that it was possible to preserve and operate a historic railway for the enjoyment of future generations. Today, the railway continues to operate as a popular tourist attraction, maintaining its historical charm and significance.
