Llangollen Railway

Opened in 1862 the Ruabon to Barmouth railway steamed its way through the Welsh countryside. At one time it was possible to board at Llangollen Station and travel to London without a single change! the Railway closed to passenger traffic in 1965, and to goods in 1968 and over the next seven years Nature closed in on the buildings and track bed . However steam trains are once more to be seen in Llangollen Station thanks to the efforts of the Llangollen Railway Society.

A group was formed to renovate and reopen part of the line in September 1975, with just 60 feet of track which has now grown some 7½ miles along the Dee Valley passing wonderful scenery and giving a glimpse of how this 65 mile journey must have looked like in its heyday.

Trains operate during weekends virtually all year and daily from June to the end of October. During the summer, steam trains are mostly used.
