Signal Box Construction Photogallery Headshunt - Construction Photogallery Subway Construction Photogallery Borehole Drilling Photogallery Organisation of Photographs

All the photogalleries present the photos in date order so that the progress from ‘green field’ to completion can be seen. These galleries are added to as the work progresses.

Please Note - there is a slight change to the way the galleries work. They no longer start automatically, it is necessary to click the arrow in the centre of the Navigation Bar, just below the caption. This is to avoid the slow uploading of the galleries. (JR 5th Feb 2018)

The main project to ‘create a new railway station in Corwen’ consists of modifying the embankment, laying the track and building the platform. Two photogalleries cover the progress of the track and the platform.

There are also other ‘sub projects’ of no less importance to the overall creation of a new station, but which conveniently lend themselves to a separate photogallery. These cover the construction of the Corwen East Signal Box; the creation and erection of the Water Tower; the Subway to access the island platform; the extension of the embankment towards Green Lane to facilitate the laying of a longer headshunt; and the drilling of a borehole to provide water for the locomotives.

Fundraising to fill for the famous ‘Gap’ in the trackbed has commenced. This is the last major hurdle to be overcome for the station to open in early 2019.. Please contact Paul Bailey if you wish to help out with these project.

It is always worth repeating the warning regarding the photography of trains on the Carrog to Corwen length. All the photos of trains on the running line have been taken from the footpath on the A5 road, which runs very closely with the railway for most of its length, NOT from the trackside.

A word of caution is appropriate though! The A5 is fast, busy, twisty and heavily loaded; and there are no safe parking places between Corwen and Llidiart-y-Parc.

The safe parking places are in the layby at Llidiart-y-Parc (just to the west of the village), and in the large car parks in Corwen where there are plenty of parking places.

In between, it is necessary to walk. The footpath is on the railway side, but not particularly wide. The A5 is already prone to accidents - please don’t add any more!
