Awaiting departure from Carrog

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 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.
