Corwen train arrives after 50 years

Railway enthusiasts are celebrating the first train to visit Corwen in nearly half a century.

The Denbighshire town saw its last service in 1964 after rail cutbacks.

But volunteers at nearby Llangollen Railway have been working for four years on a two-mile (3.2km) extension from Carrog to reopen the link.

Around 30 people, many in their 60s, worked for three days a week during the past year to complete the line.

George Jones, of the Llangollen Railway Trust, said: "It has been a great challenge and a great achievement."
