The superb station at Llanfair Caereinion about half an hour before the first train of the day.
The two coach train is in the platform...
...comprising 0-6-0 no 822 "The Earl" and two Hungarian coaches.
Looking back at the station from the shed.
At Dolarddyn Road crossing the train stops and a member of the footplate crew uses a red flag to stop road traffic.
A later train seen stopped at Dolarddyn Road crossing.
Once the flagman is in position (on opposite side of crossing) the train moves continues its journey.
Cyfronydd station with the 13.00 departure from Llanfair Caereinion strengthened to 3 coaches.
A climb up to Sylfaen station ...
... which "The Earl" takes in its stride.
