Album - Hunslet 100, May 1993

Hunslet 100 celebrated the centenary of Linda and Blanche over the May Bank Holiday of 1-3 May 1993. Blanche returned to traffic after overhaul a couple of days before the gala and older brother Charles (1882) visited Boston Lodge as a static exhibit.

The busy weekend had glorious weather and had quarry hunslets on many of the shuttle trains between Porthmadog and Minffordd.

We have a selection of photos from various photographers here to relive the event and whet your appetite for Hunslet 125 over the weekend of 22-24 June 2018.
