We visited on spec, found there was a Gala on - with vintage Diesel Railcars. Whata wonderful trip! Comfy seats (especially in 1st Class- only £1 extra) and a superb view of the lovely River Dee valley. Very helpful and friendly staff - all volunteers.

I can't express how lovely this railway is :) on a day out to Llangollen you can't pass this little gem up. You buy a ticket at the office and take a lovely ride through the welsh countryside, then you stop at a place with a cafe for a while then hop back on for the ride back. Hardly anyone goes on it as well so that makes it Evan better. Oh also if your going to the eisteddfod then perhaps make it a day trip and go to the railway too.

We had a fantastic day out in Llangollen. The Steam train up to Carrog was Brilliant. Father Christmas joined us on board the train and took time with each and every child, whilst giving them a lovely present. The elves give the children a chocolate lolly and a drink and for us bigger kids they give out either juice or warm mulled wine and a locally sourced fresh mince pie. The steam train is brilliantly heated and dressed for christmas. The atmosphere is electric with excitement. This is a must for any start of the christmas festivities and for any age (babies and all). Well done to all at Llangollen Railway. XX

The views from the steam train of the river dee and the hills behind are fantastic. The cafe isn't great, but there are plenty of places to eat in Llangollen.

Four of us were on holiday and decided to visit Llangollen and took the trip on the steam train. What a lovely trip. Clear day, wonderful views and very helpful staff. When we stopped at the end of the outward journey we visited the tea room where there was a lovely snack selection to eat and drink - we had the muffins, a Danish pastry and fruit cake. We all loved our selection. The rolls looked lovely but we didn't have room to eat more before returning back to Llangollen.
