Big Train Little Train Train Launches its new website !
In 2016, the Great Little Trains of Wales secured a £67,000 grant from the UK Government Department for Transport’s Heritage and Community Rail Tourism Innovation Competition. The initiative is to encourage visitors to explore Wales by public transport, enjoying the efficiency of main lines but also enjoying the unique experience of Welsh steam trains.
The grant enabled the group to publish a guidebook called “Big Train meets Little Train”, of which nearly 10,000 copies have already been distributed, and to develop a “Service with spirit” training programme for their staff and volunteers. The new website is the next step to promote the project.
The Great Little Trains of Wales group has its own website on which you can find a lot of information about each of the 12 railways involved (http://www.greatlittletrainsofwales.co.uk/). However, we were keen to have a dedicated website for the Big Train Little Train project promoting the guidebook itself but also taking the project to another level. The new website was built by Owen Fletcher, a freelance Designer.
