Welshpool & Llanfair Railway
18th June 2013


Welshpool Raven Square station looking towards Llanfair.


The 13.00 from Llanfair Caereinion arrives at Welshpool Raven Square.


No 822 is uncoupled and runs down to the water tower...


...where the loco is oiled and watered.


For the refreshment of the footplate crew the station staff have placed a tray of tea on the buffer stop - very nice!


The 14.15 departure from Welshpool Raven Square seen "over the hedge"...


...and from the car park.


A quich dash down the A458T allows me to capture the train as it approaches Sylfaen station.


Another quich dash and the train is seen again at Castle Caereinion station..


..where a stop board is used by the crew to halt road traffic. Plans are to have an automated crossing here.


The same train now seen crossing Banwy Bridge from a roadside location kindly suggested
by the footplate crew at Castle Caereinion.


The 3 coach train continues towards Heniarth and Llanfair Caereinion.
