The Llangollen Railway Trust has announced that a limited train service will commence this July.
The railway has been closed since the Llangollen Railway PLC asked its bank to appoint receivers.
However, trains will return on Friday 9th July 2021 for the first time since the sad news, with the Trust now operating the line.
Trains will operate between Llangollen and Berwyn on Friday 9th, Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th July.
Departures from Llangollen will be at 11:00, 12:00, 13:00, 14:00, 15:00 & 16:00.
However, Friday evening, two additional trips at 19:00 and 20:00 will run to coincide with the start of the Llangollen International Eisteddfod and the Illumination of the Town Bridge taking place at 21:00.
Service will extend to Glyndyfrdwy and Carrog over the coming weeks once essential maintenance projects are completed.
A new website for the Llangollen Railway is currently being worked on, alongside a new booking system. Mike Williams from the Llangollen Railway has told RailAdvent that tickets will be sold to passengers who turn up on the day.
Tickets will be valid for one return trip between Llangollen and Berwyn.
A 2 Car DMU set will operate all of the trains, but Mike also said that if passenger demand is there, then this will be upgraded to a 4 car set.
