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, 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 hot and cold snacks, 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 the nearby camp-site and 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. We also have a 5" miniature railway and museum. (When closed enquire via Station Staff.)
The Dee Valley is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and home to the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct & Llangollen Canal World Heritage Site including many interesting features such as the Chirk Aqueduct, Horseshoe Falls and of course, Llangollen Railway itself!

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.

As per our original intention leading up to the 1996 Carrog re-opening we have at last opened the platform 2 waiting room as a museum.
The collection includes artefacts from the Ruabon to Barmouth line with special emphasis on the Llangollen to Corwen Railway (1865) and its family of five Stations.
Platform 2 Museum open on special events or by arrangement with station staff
