Fantastic experience. Price a little steep although I appreciate that it needs to be to keep the railway going.

Some lovely old steam engines up and down the tracks at Llangollen. Every once in a while Thomas comes to visit, which is very popular, and brings a lot of people to the town!

Very few people on board so lovely and quiet and made taking photos easy in all directions.. Discount for Senior Citizens a pleasant surprise. For a volunteer run enterprise we were quite impressed. Would recommend it to families for a nice afternoon trip. Always sit on the right hand side for the best photos!

Once we planned the times, this was a fun trip. Bring some food and a beer onboard and enjoy a great trip in any weather. Show up early to get a seat on whichever side you prefer and watch the train return and switch ends. On a rainy day in September it was easy to find a great seat. Get... More

Enjoyed the Gala Weekend last week travelling between LLANGOLLEN & CORWEN in carriage's pulled by steam locomotives, bring back memories of when I lived in Faversham Kent as a Schoolboy, the Steam Locomotives were still in use at that time. Diesel Electric had not arrived there at that time.

I live in Bury, near Manchester and we have a Railway similar to this with steam trains etc. However, the Llangollen steam train we went on today was easily as fun, and really interesting. We travelled up to Corwen, spent some time there and then headed back a couple of hours later before disembarking at Berwyn. Really pretty place and... More

Went there for a gala day when the weather was not as great as it might have been but the overall experience was still good. Steam trains and great scenery, Friendly people and some good things to see at the stations on the line.

We went to a gala weekend event. They had their own rolling stock as well as three visiting engines. The railway is mainly run, and supported, by enthusiastic volunteers, and runs on a scenic 10 mile length of track between Llangollen and Corwen East. There is major work going on at present to extend the line to Corwen and to... More
