Welcome to ‘Corwen Station-New’ (created April 2010).
This web-site sets out to promote the town of Corwen and the Dee Valley as the destination for the Llangollen Railway's next extension and to generate essential interest and support from the local business and resident communities.
In addition to providing an insight into the fascinating history of the Town, its railway heyday and subsequent dissolution, it will plot progress towards a new Corwen Station, which it is hoped will be a reality within the next few years.
As always the 98% volunteer Llangollen Railway is contributing the lion’s share having built the temporary Station and now the permanent one where none existed before. Obviously this is a much greater task than the restorations of existing stations previously undertaken on the line. This is in addition to rebuilding and maintaining an increasing mileage of infrastructure, expanding of the Railway’s engineering base and operating its vintage train fleet to an extended timetable.
It follows therefore that interested parties now seeking the return of a fully functional Corwen Central Station should be assisting Llangollen Railway in every way possible with the project, whilst ensuring that ex-railway land and structures that could be put back to productive use are protected.
The out of print publications ‘Corwen Trail’, ‘Rails to Corwen’ and 'Corwen Chronicles' are reproduced. (see history section).
We are very interested in old documents and photographs of Corwen to add to the portfolio.
Concrete footing in progress for island platform south elevation.
The promotional leaflet originated and maintained by Friends of Carrog Station was placed on the Corwen Post Office notice board in 2010.
