I was up in Wrexham for a cousins wedding and stayed in Llangollen on the journey home. Decided that the old station on the river looked pretty good fun so decided to buy couple of tickets. I used to travel from South Wales up through Crewe and Chester when I was a student in the 1970s and got all those old memories flooding back when I sat in the old cabin style Pullman coaches. The smell of musty wood and cloth and the toot of the train as we dawdled to our destination. Memory overload -- and such fun. The train passed a couple of station and we got off at the last stop to overlook the aqueduct. I don't usually write reviews but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and am just waiting for another cousin to tie the knot!
