The Llangollen Railway
From David Hughes.
This was my first visit to a preserved railway since March 2020! The Llangollen Railway turned out 7822 Foxcote Manor for a return trip to Carrog from Llangollen. Unlike some preserved railways, you can book one ticket, rather than have to pay over the odds for a whole compartment, which is the trend on some other railways. The first train of the day leaves at 10.40 and runs non stop to Carrog, then runs round, so you have around 30 minutes for a cuppa from the take away cafe. Nice to experience the Dee Valley once again and support the railway fighting the odds at the moment.
