Carrog Station Sidings
Carrog Station Sidings
The sidings at Carrog have been reinstated by the Llangollen Railway according to the original layout; here they are occupied by ballast hoppers - no doubt for use on the Corwen extension work. In the 1950s a camping coach (an old railway coach converted for use as holiday accommodation) was stabled here.
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.
