Another Welsh foray

Back from Wales... we visited the FR - including a trip behind Blanche in the first class saloon 102:

The WHR, including a trip from Rhyd Ddu to Hafod y Llyn via the Aberglaslyn (wonderful!) and some time at Bryn y Felin paddling and watching trains.

and the Talyllyn from Dolgoch Falls to Nant Gwernol.

Happy days

I'm jealous! I really want to get back to Wales and the Ffestiniog and WHR!

So am I. Paddling at Bryn y Felin looks like a great idea :)

What a wonderful trip! You seem to have done the N Wales narrow gauge justice. Travelling with Blanche in the observation car is as good as it gets...despite living in stone-throwing distance from the FR that experience eludes me for the moment!

It would be interesting to attempt to fit a sound card and dcc to a model of Blanche...but how would you get that furiously angry sound she has, sitting at "rest", or the eager terrier panting as she storms Dduallt!!

looking forward to seeing more progress on the model
