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.

DATES FOR THE DIARY
8th, 9th & 10th April 2016 – Spring Steam Gala
Featuring an intensive timetable of both passenger and freight trains, a great collection of historic steam locomotives and special attractions taking place along the line, our three day Gala has something for all railway enthusiasts and families alike.
There will be up to two visiting locomotives, operating alongside the railway’s own important fleet of historic steam locomotives. Subject to completion of its major overhaul, resident 4-6-0 No.7822 ‘Foxcote Manor’ will also be taking a starring role at the Gala.
14th & 15th May 2016 – Victorian Weekend
Back by popular demand, Llangollen Railway will be stepping back in time to the Victorian era over the weekend of 14th & 15th May 2016.
There will be a dedicated Victorian railway exhibition at Llangollen, featuring many historic drawings, documents and railwayana relating to the former Ruabon to Barmouth line and dating back to the 1850s. Many of these have never been publically displayed before and offer a rare insight into the early days of the line from over 150 years ago.
Look out for “Her Majesty Queen Victoria” and her entourage inspecting the line throughout the weekend. At the Berwyn, the station will be transformed back to its original 1865 opening day appearance, complete with period posters and traditional coal fires.
