The Barry Tourist Railway is adjacent to Barry Island main line Station and runs on specific dates throughout the year. The Station Cafe is in the Barry Island Station Building where tickets for the railway may be purchased. The railway was featured in the June edition of Railway Modeller.
John Buxton operates the railway which he built on the former track bed of the old docks railway. The future plans include a working museum in the Plymouth Road shed as well as extending the lines. For more information and running dates visit:-
The Railway runs from Llangollen Station for 7½ miles following the River Dee to Carrog with intermediate stations at Berwyn and Glyndyfrdwy.
While visiting Llangollen it is worth diverting to see the Ponteysyllte Aqueduct being the longest and highest aquaduct in G.B.
Berwyn station master’s house is a holiday let. The station offers views of the old Chain Bridge over the Dee. Nearby are the Horse Shoe Falls, a semicircular weir designed by Thomas Telford to feed water from the Dee into the Llangollen canal.
The line at Carrog is being extended 2½ miles to Corwen.
