Damage suffered on the Conwy Valley line

Home > News > Damage suffered on the Conwy Valley line
The damage suffered on the Conwy Valley line in the December floods is much worse than first anticipated and it is likely that train services between Llandudno Junction and Blaenau Ffestiniog will not resume until late February. 

Much has been reported in the Press recently of the return to working order after a ten year restoration of the iconic locomotive “Flying Scotsman”.  This engine dating from the late 1920’s is probably one of Britain’s most famous steam engines and it is good to hear that on the 15th June 2016 she will work a special charter train the “Emerald Isle Explorer” from London Euston to Holyhead and travel along the North Wales coast from Chester through Rhyl, Conwy and Bangor.

Another famous steam engine returns to the North Wales on the 6th February when “Royal Scot” does the same journey along the coast to Holyhead on a charter originating at Carnforth.
