The arrival of mid-year saw the Dee Valley in full bloom. The weather has been mostly dry and warm, providing ideal growing conditions for all sorts of plants. As far as the railway has been concerned, the “growing” has been in the less convenient spots like along the “four foot” and in the “cess”, giving the track a fresh and green appearance.!
Llangollen Railway Trust is seeking to appoint a dynamic and highly motivated individual to join our Administration team which, alongside the numerous volunteer departments, is responsible for the delivery of on outstanding heritage experience to the visiting public.

Welcome to Llangollen Railway
Llangollen Railway is a Heritage Railway Line running between Llangollen, following the River Dee through the Dee Valley for 10 miles, to the town of Corwen. There are four, soon to be five, stations along the line all with their own special charm and hidden gems. Each station has local walks that all have stunning scenery.
The line, located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), remains close to the waters of the river for most of its length, on the north bank at Llangollen Station, the river is crossed on to the south bank via the Dee Bridge, approximately one mile upstream from Llangollen. The Dee is classed as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for its entire length.
Llangollen Railway was started in 1975 by a group of enthusiasts who saw the potential for a scenic heritage line through the Dee Valley. Their original vision grew into what you can see today.
10 miles of track have been re-laid westwards along the track-bed of the old Ruabon to Barmouth main line, through to Corwen. Services currently run 7.5 miles to Carrog and volunteers are working hard to enable Corwen Station to open in 2022.
All the stations along the track are of a typical Victorian design and each station has been recreated in 1950’s Great Western colour scheme.
Why not make a stop at one of our stations and go for a stroll then hop back on to end your day in style… Visit one of our tea rooms for a refreshing drink and maybe a piece of cake or take a look in our gift shop at Llangollen Station and purchase a souvenir to remember your day.
There is lots to see and do whether you want to spend a full day or just a few hours with us.
