Llangollen Railway operates between Llangollen and Corwen in North Wales, a distance of 10 miles. It is a remnant of the line that ran from Ruabon to Barmouth.
The station occupies a picturesque location alongside the River Dee.
The station is well preserved with extremely long platforms.
Close to the station is the Llangollen Canal which provides horse drawn narrow boat trips from Llangollen Wharf.

Probably the most attractive building on the railway is the station building at Berwyn, one of the intermediary stations.

This train is headed by Battle of Britain Class Sir Keith Park which, although only pulling 6 carriages, could not cope with the gradient at Berwyn and had to be banked, somewhat ignominiously by ex-GWR 2807.
