Railway has talks with top Wales transport boss

* Lee Robinson from Transport for Wales meets Llangollen Railway's Liz McGuinness.

A national transport boss has paid a visit to Llangollen Railway.

Lee Robinson, North Wales Development Director of Transport for Wales, called into the heritage railway to meet its business manager Liz McGuinness and other members of the team based at the station.

He took a ride in a cab to Carrog in locomotive No.31271 and went on to Corwen to see station site progress.

Liz McGuinness said: "We discussed the need to improve public transport arrangements between Ruabon mainline station and Llangollen and we agreed to explore a joint ticketing venture to help visitors arrive by train and bus."

After his visit Mr Robinson said: "At Transport for Wales we are on a journey to transform the transport sector throughout our Wales and Borders network, through implementing our £5 billion investment programme.

“ It’s been great to visit Llangollen, to see the railway first hand and also the ongoing work to complete Corwen station.  

"We understand the social, economic, environmental and cultural benefits of the railway and these improvements will attract more visitors and allow them to leave their car at home to experience a fantastic day out.”
