Llangollen Railway, North Wales

2nd July 2017 - Classic Transport Weekend

 

This weekend event incorporates a nostalgic travel back in time to the classic transport of the day.

 

With an intensive Timetable of Steam, Diesel and Heritage Railcars and a classic bus service running between Glyndyfrdwy and Corwen (10am to 5pm), along with a vintage vehicle display at Glyndyfrdwy. This is sure to whet everybody’s appetite! Come on down and join in the fun and see what those classic vehicles were like in their heyday.

 

Llangollen Railway is the only standard gauge heritage railway in North Wales. We are located beside the historic Dee Bridge (built in 1345) in the centre of Llangollen town. The journey is a relaxing 10 miles travelling through the stunning Dee Valley to the lovely town of Corwen the cross roads of North Wales.

 

The railway is located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and this is evident as the train gently meanders through the Dee Valley. The line follows the picturesque River Dee, classed as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), for its entire length.

 

Our small section of line, which in its day went from Ruabon to Barmouth taking people to the seaside on holiday and transporting various goods including slate and chemicals, offers a sample of the sights and sounds of yesteryear. The line passes through some of the finest natural beauty North Wales has to offer.

 

The views from our carriages are breath taking and constantly changing from season to season, you will see the first spring lambs and the ever changing colours of the beautiful vista.

 

As well as steam hauled trains, we also run Diesel locomotive and Heritage Railcar services on selected days throughout the season.

 

Depart Approx 17.00.
