Llangollen Railway is the only standard gauge heritage railway in North Wales. It starts near the historic Dee Bridge (built in 1345) in the centre of Llangollen town. It travels 10 miles travelling through the Dee Valley to the town of Corwen.
Unfortunately for Timothy, we went after a visit to the nearby Pontcysyllte aqueduct (which we came to see) and didn’t know that Llangollen or its railway even existed until we found them, at 15:20… that’s about 10 minutes after the last train of the day.
Ooops. But now we know about both, and will be back another day – especially as Timothy made friends with the lady in the station shop.
