SJ1143 : Carrog Station

taken 3 years ago, near to Carrog, Denbighshire/Sir Ddinbych, Great Britain

Carrog Station
Carrog Station
A train from Llangollen enters Carrog on a damp and dismal bank holiday Monday. The apparent lack of passengers no doubt replicates the reality for such a rural station in the years prior to closure in 1965.
Llangollen Railway
Originally part of a cross-country route from Ruabon to Barmouth, the Llangollen Railway is now a heritage line predominantly operated by steam locomotives. It currently runs for 7.5 miles through the Dee Valley between Llangollen and Carrog, although an extension to Corwen is under construction. The line was originally opened in 1865 but fell victim to the Beeching era cuts, closing to passengers in 1965. It was re-opened section by section from 1975, reaching Carrog in 1996.
