Welcome to the official site of the Friends of Carrog Station

 

Carrog Station on the Llangollen and Corwen Railway (inc 1860) is set close to the village of Carrog with its 17th century Dee Bridge, river and mountain vistas and traditional Inn.

Meticulously rebuilt by volunteers as it was in the 1950s here you will find Llangollen Railway’s best preserved and authentic station.

Buy your tickets through the original ticket window in the original booking hall and visit our excellent friendly Tea Room which serves a variety of freshly made snacks and homemade cakes, as well as tea, coffee and soft drinks.

 

When planning your next visit to the Llangollen Railway why not base yourself at Carrog Station taking full advantage of our free car park?

 

There is plenty for the discerning traveller to do between trains. You can visit the picturesque Carrog Village with its popular Grouse Inn, riverside walks and places of historical interest.

The Dee Valley is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and home to the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct & Canal World Heritage Site.

Alongside the Llangollen Railway's Carrog Station was this short length of narrow gauge track (2' gauge) that was offering rides behind 0-4-0 locomotive Iorwerth. This was a freelance build in 2002 by Adam Barber. The boiler dates from the 1950s and was used in a bakery in Bangor and the engine has a single vertical cylinder with flywheel.
