Railway steams back to the 60s

Llangollen Railway is steaming back to the swinging decade on July 26 and 27.

That’s when the heritage railway will be staging it fifth 1960's weekend.
The timetable is similar to its recent Classic Transport weekend, with the addition of two Saturday evening trips.

As well as returning campers to Glyndyfrdwy and Carrog, these trains are also available for railway members and volunteers to enjoy.

The locomotives 80072 and 3802 should be in steam.


Class 26 D5310 will work three trips each day and two railcars - expected to be the Class 109 and Class 127 – will complete the line-up.
Some railcar services will run to Bonwm.

Free vintage bus rides will be on offer between Llangollen and Carrog, using two vehicles from the North West Museum of Transport, calling at Berwyn and Glyndyfrdwy en route.


The railway’s popular vintage vehicle rally will be staged in the field behind Glyndyfrdwy station.

Dr Beeching's real ale bar can be enjoyed on Llangollen station throughout the weekend.
The bar will have seven draught local real ales for you to try, along with bottled lagers, wines and soft drinks.

Real ale is available at £2.50 a pint. Not quite 1960s prices but still a bargain.

Retro-themed trade stands can be found at Llangollen station, including Craftevan, with a range of original Mini and VW camper-themed gifts along with some superb vintage clothes.


Saturday night will see live music on Llangollen station - resident stars Matt and Sophie will be joined by Elvis to entertain you from around 7.30pm.
