(North Wales Notebook) Railways 4/5

We had a weeks holiday in Porthmadog, North Wales in early September and so for the next few weeks I will be featuring a variety of images and collages, and a mix of subjects, which I hope you find entertaining.

 

No trip to Porthmadog would be complete without a ride through the mountains on the Ffestiniog Railway. Seen here at Blaenau Ffestiniog taking water is double Fairlie Merddin Emrys as it is prepared for the plunge down through the Snowdonian mountains back to Porthmadog.

These are amazing machines Brian: and as good as when they first saw the light of day. I have a feeling a new one was built in the 1970s
Brian Walbey: I think you are right about the new build Chris, but they really are quite unusual.

Built in 1879 my research tells me; I hope I look as good when I'm 130 years old! What great engineers and visionaries the builders were. I love the steam coming from this.
Brian Walbey: Yes a fine thribute to our forefathers abilities Alan, just like some of things currntly on the Portillo series.
That's a fine old engine, in fine nick!
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Tom.

Great capture Brian steam and all ....the steam engines that i grew up with were nice but they would never compare to this one....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. I'm not at all familiar with Canadian engines and railways apart from videos of the line through the Rockies, I must enhance my education on that score I think.
