Holiday NG interest


The stock of rail at Launceston for their extension.


Our loco was Lilian sporting a FR-style tender giving far more room on the footplate and increasing coal capacity.


Velinheli (aka first steam loco to make it to Beddgelert on the new WHR) was without wheels in the sheds.


and under the road bridge was a familiar sight…


oh and Dad got us a footplate ride on the way back!

Pecorama was fun…


They have a 7 1/4 inch gauge Linda too!
