Llangollen Station
Abbey Road
LL20 8SN


Notes - Parking in the town is good, although there are no facilities for the station itself. Two pay & display car parks are within easy walking distances ( 5-10 mins ), these situated on either side of the river.

Access to the Llangollen platform is free. For viewing the depot, this is via a ramp at the end of the west end of the platform. Alternatively, the depot entrance road is situated on the A542 Abbey Road, this being just a few hundred yards away from the station. Although there is room to park here, this is strickly for volunteers and residents only.

If wanting a look / guided tour around the shed, it would be a good idea to get in touch with the railway before your visit. Most, if not all of the locos stable at Llangollen, although you may see a few at Carrog if the line has a diesel gala event.

Vantage Points - Unfortunately, the shed area cannot be seen from the station. A passing train will only give you a small view, as the depot is on a much higher ground. However, a partial head on view can be seen from the depot gate, although you won't be able to clearly indentify most of the locos.
