Llangollen Railway is the only standard gauge heritage railway in North Wales.

It is 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 crossroads of North Wales.

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 follows the picturesque River Dee, classed as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), for its entire length, passing through some of the finest natural beauty North Wales has to offer.

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

Rothley Re-opens

Main Line Steam Trust Limited started operating regular weekend steam trains from Loughborough to Rothley Station, five and a half miles away, as from 3 January.

A timetable has now been introduced by the Group, which was formed in 1969 to acquire a suitable length of main line for the operation of steam-hauled passenger trains at realistic speeds.

Steam-hauled passenger trains are now being run over two-thirds of the old Great Central Railway to Leicester, and in the future the Trust intends to run into Belgrave and Birstall Station in the northern suburbs of the city.
