Heritage trains run back to Carrog

 
* M51907 on arrival at Carrog.
 
Train services to Carrog resumed today Saturday when the class 108 diesel ran through to the present terminus with the 11am service out of Llangollen Station.
 
On a day that started with bright sunshine, the trip down the line allowed passengers to enjoy the extensive vistas of the Dee Valley thanks to thinning of the vegetation in places and the absence of spring time growth so far.
 
The result of the recent dry spell could be seen in the low level of water in the River Dee.
 
Carrog station was open and staffed and the cafe available for refreshments.
 
Also open for sales and donations was the 80072 coach.
 
Railway spokesman George Jones said: "It was a case of welcome back.
 
"We are back in business, with an extensive programme of trains and activities for the new season, so why not come for a ride and encourage others to do so too.
 
"At Llangollen the exhibition coach provided a partial display of information whilst arrangements are made to complete the Corwen exhibition section in time for Easter."
