Crowds flock to classic vehicle event

Crowds came flocking to the annual gathering of classic road vehicles hosted by Llangollen Railway  at Glyndyfrdwy station over the weekend.

Thirty preserved buses were invited to the show where they rubbed metal shoulders with a host of classic cars and motorbikes.

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

Private owners of over 150 vintage cars were invited to show off their pride joys and around 60 motorcycles were on display as the British Motorcycle Preservation Society chose the venue to celebrate its 40th anniversary. Pictures by George Jones.
