Llangollen Railway Trip

Club Outing: 26th September 2004

Nine club members set off at 9.00am on Sunday 27th September 2004 to the llangollen end of the Llangollen Railway. We were fortunate to have a guided tour of the engine sheds, led by one of the many volunteers who are working on restoring many locos.

With plenty of time to spare (the trains don't run that often) we split up, some sampling Tea at the Cafe, whilst others took the opportunity to record the superb location of the station, nestled on the bank of the river.

We took the 1.30 train to take the beautiful 8 mile ride to the end of the current line at Carrog, where we had either 20 minutes or 2.5 hours!

With only a few buildings and a shop selling railway books there was time to soak up the stunning scenery and the silence.

We took the ride home, sadly too quick on the return (as it is down hill). Took the opprtunity to see the two trains depart from Llangollen Station before traveling home.

To find out more about the Llangollen and the events they have visit the Llangollen website.
