Classic road vehicles to gather this weekend


* Classic vehicles will line up on the show ground at Glyndyfrwdy.

The annual gathering of classic road vehicles will be held at Glyndyfrdwy station on Saturday and Sunday.


Thirty preserved buses have been invited to the show, with an open topper providing the ever popular seaside style of transport.

Examples of the former Crosville company's buses, as introduced for the rail replacement service when the Ruabon to Barmouth line closed in 1965, will recall the road scene on the A5 50 years ago.

Private owners of over 150 vintage cars have been invited to show off their pride joys and sixty motorcycles are expected as the British Motorcycle Preservation Society has chosen the venue to celebrate their 40th anniversary.

With a selection of classic lorries and fire engines joining the line up, there will be something for everyone to be nostalgic about.

An intensive timetable of steam, diesel and heritage railcars will provide a near half-hourly train service between Llangollen and Corwen and offers the traditional journey option to access to the half-way station at Glyndyfrdwy. 

A classic bus service will running between Glyndyfrdwy and Corwen (10am to 5pm), along with a vintage vehicle display at Glyndyfrdwy.
