The Dee Valley Railway is the UK's longest double track, mail line heritage railway.  It's one of the few places in the world where full size steam engines can be seen passing each other - just as it was when steam ruled the rails.

Trains run every weekend during the year, bank holidays and selected week daysthrought the summer.  In addition, First Class Restaurant Car Services provide five course meals whilst travelling between Lleyn and Aberdare.  For a very special night out, step abroad the Dee Valley Pullman and return to an age of luxury and glamour, the quintessential Orient Express experiance.  Childhood dreams can come true with a Drive a Locomotive Experience when you can take the regulator on a mighty steam locomotive or notch up a powerful diesel.  We also run many special events, including steam galas, Peppa Pig, Days out with Thomas, a Bonfire Night, a Wartime Weekend and Santa Specials.

The railway has won a number of awards including "independent railway of the year", a gold award for the Denbighshire best visitor experience and is a quality assured visitor attraction as designated by Visit Wales.  Trains can also be hired for private parties and corate events.  Charter intimate carriages or be really exclusive and hire the Pullman carriages with glamorous bar cars.  The railway also has its own function room, at Lleyn, which has been beautifully restored to Victorian splendour and is suitable for events for up to 70 people.
