It looks much-loved, Brian.
Brian Walbey: One of the main tourist attractions in that part of North Wales, it is always very well plresented.
These little loco's are great, Brian.
Brian Walbey: The first time I travelled behind one of them I was surprised at their pulling power.
Wow - I've never seen anything quite like that!
Brian Walbey: They are fascinating engines, ask Frank to explain why they are like this and how they work, guaranteed to send you off to sleep smile
Très jolie locomotive.
Brian Walbey: They are also very unusual Martine.

Not taken at the height of the tourist season from the look of things
Brian Walbey: Yes it was early jUly and there was a big gala all weekend but this was teatime and I managed to take a few shots without lots of people in them.

Now I have been on that when staying at Portmerion Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is a fine railway and a beautiful ride as well.
It was years ago we visited here and long before these lovely new locomotives were built.
Brian Walbey: WE didn't ride the train this time, we have done so at least three times before.

It looks like it might have escaped from a Thomas the tank engine booksmile

Where were all the rail enthusiasts?
Brian Walbey: It was early July and there was a big gala all weekend but this was teatime and I managed to take a few shots without lots of people in them.
this is hands down the neatest locomotive i have seen, Brian - i note the shiny handrails and the well routed hose pipe at the front.
Brian Walbey: They are fascinating engines, but just right for the job they have to do.

Ah. wonderful! That I will look forward to very much. Its hard to believe the this is was built as fairly recently as 1992.
Brian Walbey: I recall you've shown us picutres of these locos before, they are so unusual.

It looks as if you have been out and about a lot in 2018, Brian
Brian Walbey: We had a week in North Wales and four days in the Peak District plus a long weekend in Tewksbury for the Croome meeting and we like to visit as many places as we can. We go out locally quite a bit but not very often anywhere new. We have been looking at Bath yet again for this year, we found a cottage in Bathhampton which might be a possible and there is also the Sheerings hotel in Bath which looks quite nice. Trouble is with my balance/Vertigo issues I don't drive anymore and am not always on top form which can inhibit what we do when away plus Maureen is starting to lose her confidence a bit driving, especially if motorways are involved. No doubt something will turn up, we still have a lot more to see in Norfolk which is an area that we like and we rather fancy returning to Suffolk as well, could do them both at the same time I guess, I'm sure we could find two weeks to spare, all it needs is a big dip into the bank account smile
