 It's event day on the Llangollen Railway as GWR tank engine 5199 brings the train into Carrog Station. 10/04/2016

 The occasion was "Along Cambrian Lines" which was described in a beautifully produced souvenir programme. 10/04/2016

 On the tail end was 7820 "Dinmore Manor". 10/04/2016

 7822 "Foxcote Manor" took the train out to Llangollen but we alighted at Glyndyfrdwy to return to Carrog via Corwen. At Carrog, 7820 hooked onto the front of the train for Llangollen. 10/04/2016

 The Corn Mill beckoned! 10/04/2016

 7820 came off the train to take on water. 10/04/2016

 Post Corn Mill and GWR Pannier tank 6430 was waiting to depart with a mixed train comprising one suburban coach and some freight wagons and guard's van. It was quite novel to be riding in vintage compartment stock again. 10/04/2016

 While waiting for 6430 to depart, 80072 arrived with a re-enactment of the Land Cruise, aptly and artistically described by Charlie Hulme at www.nwrail.org.uk/nw1006c.htm 10/04/2016

 6430 at Berwyn where we alighted to have a look at the recently restored Chain Bridge. 10/04/2016

 The corner of the land adjoining the hotel (bottom right) has been extensively rebuilt after flood damage. 10/04/2016

 The bridge leading to the hotel of the same name. 10/04/2016

 Access to the bridge from the station is via a footpath and under-pass. 10/04/2016

 Berwyn station can be seen top left. 10/04/2016

 View from the bridge looking upstream on the River Dee. 10/04/2016

 The Llangollen Canal runs at the rear of the hotel where horse-drawn boat trips are available. The canal is 88 miles long, runs from Hurleston in South Cheshire to Llangollen and crosses the magnificent (scary!) Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. 10/04/2016
