Glyn Valley Tramway at Chirk
When you are in the vicinity, also take the opportunity to visit adjacent to the National Rail station at Chirk where the similarly named but separate charity organisation Glyn Valley Tramway Trust are in the process of:
rebuilding the former Glyn Valley Tramway's Chirk station platform and waiting room, and
creating a new narrow gauge railway in the style of the former Glyn Valley Tramway, which will make use of the former GVT trackbed from Chirk Station to Pontfaen, a distance of about 1 mile.
