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.
