Llangollen Railway Station
Llangollen Railway Station
Viewed from Llangollen Bridge. The main station building dates from 1865. The signal box (low red brick structure with hipped slate roof at the near end of the platform) is an example of a GWR type 7a signal box, built in 1898 at the time when the station was remodelled contemporary with the doubling of the track. Both are Grade II listed buildings (cadw ref: 1083 LinkExternal link and Cadw ref: 1084 LinkExternal link respectively).
Llangollen Railway :: SJ1143
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 runs for ten miles through the Dee Valley between Llangollen and Corwen. 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 and Corwen in 2014.
