Railway swings back to the 60s this weekend


* A vintage bus service will run during the weekend.

It's the seventh 1960's weekend at the Llangollen Railway this Saturday and Sunday.

There's lots of 60's themed things to enjoy all along the line over the weekend.

Visitors are encouraged to dress up in 60's outfits as many of the staff do.
Dr Beeching's Bar in the Robertson Suite at Llangollen station will be open on Friday evening and Saturday from 12 until late.

There will be seven local real cask ales and a cider on offer at £3 a pint and bottled lagers, wines and ciders.

The railway will be running a 1960's-themed pub quiz at around 8pm on Friday evening, entry will be £10 per team with all proceeds to our appeal to build a water tower at our new station in Corwen.
There will be live music performed on the platform during Saturday afternoon and evening, from 7-10pm. Entry is free.

You can also enjoy a burger from the station restaurant barbeque and lots of people get up and dance. 
Berwyn station café will be open and alighting from the train here provides quick and easy access to the Chain Bridge and hotel, offering wonderful views of the railway and the Dee.

The popular and free "rail replacement" vintage bus service will be running between Llangollen and Corwen during the day, also calling at Berwyn and Glyndyfrdwy - where there is a large vintage vehicle rally of 60's era cars and other vehicles and a charming little café in the station serving tea and cakes.

Anyone with a vintage car from the 1960s era or older is welcome to bring it along to display and will receive complimentary travel on the railway for the event.
The buses also call at Carrog on the A5, with the station tearooms a short walk away.

The railway will be running an intensive timetable of superb vintage trains.
