Steam locomotive 3802 has hauled the final train to Corwen East of the 2018 season on the Llangollen Railway.

The 1510 from Llangollen on Sunday 4th November 2018 was the last public service train of the 2018 season. It ran with a commemorative bilingual headboard and flags. This is to mark the end of four years of successful operations to the temporary platform.

3802 performed the same honours on the 22nd October 2014, this was the first ever train to Corwen East. Even the same three Welsh flags were re-used and Harry Barber was the same driver.

This time, however, the train was not topped and tailed as in 2014 and 3802 performed the final propelling move back to Carrog with a select passenger complement of members and others on board. Ben Jackson was Driver 2.

A fortunate spell of blue sky for the 1540 arrival brightened the occasion when station staff were on hand with others to mark the occasion.

The next train to Corwen in 2019 will be to the new terminus on a date to be announced.
