Welshpool And Llanfair Railway 1/7

The Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway is a 2 ft 6 in (762 mm) narrow gauge heritage railway in Powys, Wales. The line is around 8.5 miles (13.7 km) long and runs westwards from the town of Welshpool via Castle Caereinion to the village of Llanfair Caereinion. On our way home from North Wales last year we took an alternative route in order to call in at Llanfair to take a look at the railway.

It is a lovely toy, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Too big for my playroom Ray.
Joli train, j'aime la locomotive.
Brian Walbey: Almost cute isn't it.
Well worth the detour Brian.
Brian Walbey: We rode on it well over 20 years ago and this is the first time we've been back.
It's a rather handsome engine!

A charming little line with super Great Westernized locos. I travelled on it in the 1970s but can't remember anything about it now..
Brian Walbey: We rode on it well over 20 years ago and this is the first time we've been back.

I spent area ten years or so supporting the W&L mainly through helping to run a southern England sales stand to raise money for the railway but also working on the railway; I was part of the track-laying gang and would spend a week each October relaying part of the track.
Brian Walbey: I knew you'd been involved there Alan but not to that extent.
These narrow gauge railways are a delight. I thought this was the one Mr Rolfe helped to build
Brian Walbey: This is a lovely little railway, Alan was involved, this is what he said today 'I spent area ten years or so supporting the W&L mainly through helping to run a southern England sales stand to raise money for the railway but also working on the railway; I was part of the track-laying gang and would spend a week each October relaying part of the track.

As a child I thought that was meant to be a clock on the front Brian.
Brian Walbey: I bet most kids think that smile A few years ago we decided to have a day out at the Midland Railway Centre at Butterly, not far from us, little did we know it was Thomas time and every engine had a face on front, needless to say I didn't take many pictures!!

Lovely … Chad still thinks it's a clock on the front

Some nice old coaches.
Brian Walbey: All from overseas, mainly Austria I think.
I can see this in miniature as a child's toy, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I bet most little boys would like to play with a miniature this, if they could put their games consoles down!

A good, old heritage railway! I like the Welsh names I can never pronounce.
Brian Walbey: They are difficult to pronounce Philine although I can actually pronounce the famous long name 'llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch' but don't ask me ow I learnt it because I can't remember!

Brian Walbey: This is an espcially delightful little railway.
