(North Wales Notebook) The Other Train 1/5

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.

 

Following on from last weeks theme of Welsh Narrow Gauge Railways this weeks images were all taken from the same place, an open carriage window in a train on the other side of the platform at Tan-y-Bwlch on the Ffestiniog Railway.

 

Could this be a Welsh relative of Hamish peeking out of the window to see what is going on.

 

On Saturday I had the pleasure of spending a short period of time with Les Auld at the Great Central Railway Winter Gala, thanks Les, nice to meet you again, very enjoyable.

Nice shot Brian....it is nice to see that they let the dogs come along....over here they are put in gages in the baggage car or refuse to allow them get aboard at all....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Well this is a heritage train Peter, I'm not sure that dogs are allowed in the carriages on a national network train.
Funny picture, this dog is so cute. A+ VAL smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Val, I have the dog in another shot on Friday.

Astrid is so right. That's a Hamish look-alike if I ever saw one. What a sweet shot.
Brian Walbey: It must be a Welsh hamish Ginnie, thanks for your comment.

I can see Hamish.
Brian Walbey: Or at least you think you can Chad, this might be a welsh Hamish.

Lovely are dog only allowed to travel third class
Brian Walbey: I think dogs can travel anywhere on this heritage train vintage.
Lovely shot Brian. That could be the little man himself
Brian Walbey: It might well be Janet, thanks for your comment.

Nice to see Hamish again! And now I know what DIM YSMYGU means in English! I had entered even this waggon although rather packed! -you took a nice scene! - third class cheaper than first and second class? I remember the wooden seats in the 3rd class as I used as child the train!
Brian Walbey: I think it is probably a WElsh Hamish Philine, it's a sweet little dog whatever.
Very nicely seen double take, and both have white hair smile
Brian Walbey: I hadn't thought of that JOhn, thanks for your comment.
Hamish's look-alike and the gentleman in the red & white shirt seem to have their gaze directed at the same thing, Brian.

A cute & charming shot.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Beverly.

Not seen Hamish for some time now; so this is where he's been. It looks like the little dog is enjoying his day out.
Brian Walbey: I think he was Alan, yes I guess Scotia must be busy again.
A fine study, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Graeme.
The Hamish impersonator - nice one Brian
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Pamela.
this is an amusing shot. i guess the dog was going: what's all this fuss outside the window?
Brian Walbey: I never did look down the platform to see what was going on.
