CROESO I REILFFORDD LLANGOLLEN

Welcome to Llangollen Railway

We are working hard behind the scenes to prepare for re-opening of the railway.  Unfortunately, we don’t have a date for this at the moment but are closely following the Welsh Government’s updates and advice for guidance.  As soon as we have a date it will be announced on our website and our social media platforms.

We are busy preparing the railway so we can open without further delay when we are given the go ahead.  Volunteers and a small team of staff are returning to prepare the stations, track and engines.  After a 15 week shutdown there is much to do!

A huge thank you to everyone who has donated, bid on our auctions and purchased shares over the last few months.  We are very grateful for your support.

When Llangollen Railway does get the green light to re-open we will still need your support more than ever.  We have already lost a substantial part of our yearly income due to the cancellation of events and a huge reduction in coach bookings.  To compound this, once we do open, we will be unable to run at full capacity due to social distancing restrictions which may remain in place for some time.

If you are in a position to help Llangollen Railway see out 2020 and come back fighting in 2021 please take a look below at the many ways you can help.

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
