Railway swings back to the 60s this weekend

Llangollen Railway swings back half a century from this Thursday to Sunday when it stages its annual 1960s weekend.

A packed programme of retro-themed events begins on Thursday night when there's a real ale bar open from 5-11pm in the railway's Henry Robertson Suite.

Friday Night sees a 60s dance and real ale bar between 4 and 11pm with an entry fee of £2.

On Saturday there's an open mic session on platform one from noon-5pm.

That evening sees a live disco and dance on the main platform which has a £3 entry fee. Revellers are encouraged to dress in clothing from the swinging era.

During the weekend there will be classic cars, bikes and buses on display at Glyndyfrdwy station field and on Sunday there's an intensive timetable of steam, diesel and heritage railcar (DMU) services running.

On Saturday and Sunday a vintage rail replacement bus service will be in operation between Llangollen-Glyndyfrdwy-Carrog and Corwen.
