Railway's new film highlights its virus safety measures

* Railway general manager Liz McGuinness introduces the short film.

Llangollen Railway has premiered a short film giving travellers details of what to expect following its re-opening after months of coronavirus lockdown.

Introduced by general manager Liz McGuinness and shot by local firm Orb Sound & Lighting, the two-minute video describes how there have been lots of changes at the heritage attraction to comply with social distancing regulations.

These include passengers being asked to form an orderly queue as they enter the station and then wait until they are shown to their numbered seat on the train by a member of staff.

They will then be asked to use the provided hand santizer before boarding.

The manager describes how the cafe and toilets are open at Llangollen station and down the line at Carrog station, although closed on the trains.

Last instruction for travellers is to leave the train as quickly as possible at the end of their journey so it can be thoroughly cleaned before the next group of passengers comes aboard.
