The Ffestiniog Railway - Gwynedd, North Wales
in 1990


The Ffestiniog Railways works at Boston Lodge on a grey damp morning in 1990.


Double Fairlie "Merddin Emrys" waits to move off shed at Boston Lodge as "Mountaineer"
comes off the Cob and turns towards Minffordd with a Blaenau Ffestiniog train


"Linda" with a Porthmadog train on an ungated road crossing at Tanygrisiau


"Merddin Emrys" at Blaenau Ffestiniog station before retuning to Porthmadog


Blaenau Ffestiniog station is shared with Network Rails Conwy Valley line in foreground.


In the tradition of the great railway photographer Ivo Peters, who liked to get his vintage Bentley car in his shots, I
found this handy parking place between Porthmadog and Penryn for my Ford Fiesta, which allowed me to get this
shot of the double Fairlie, "Earl Of Merioneth", on a Blaenau Ffestiniog train.
