Flooding closed the Conwy Valley line for 3 months
part of February 2004 brought heavy rainfall to North Wales. The
effect of this, falling on already sodden ground, led to very serious flooding
particularly in the Conwy Valley around Llanrwst. The Conwy Valley
line suffered very badly with serious damage between Tal y Cafn and Betws
y Coed. Repairs to the line were extensive and it was not reopened
until 22nd May 2004. Further flooding seriously affected the line
in the early part of 2005 but the preventative measures put in in 2004
limited the damage caused.
