A weekend in Wales

Some great shots of the Ffestiniog Railway, I wonder if LocoYard has considered narrow gauge for his new layout.

Well house sorting took longer than expected (what a surprise!) so I haven’t achieved anything on the modelling front. However, I did manage to make a visit to the Ffestiniog Railway for the Vintage Weekend.

I was fortunate enough to be rostered as a brakesman on both Friday and Saturday for the gravity train, one of which was from the summit which means I have now gravitated over the entire mainline from the summit downwards. The only slight unfortunate part of this was being stuck at Dduallt for about 1.25 hours on Saturday waiting a path back down. The loco crew were slightly more organised than we were and had brought themselves the requisite for shovel cooking.

Here are a few photos from the weekend (taken on a phone so not the highest quality).
