Album - Victorian Weekend, October 2015

Over the long weekend of 9-11 October 2015 the Ffestiniog Railway continued the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of the introduction of passenger trains.

Two vintage trains were in use, along with a freight train. These were hauled by a selection of double Fairlie David Lloyd George, single Fairlie Taliesin and Englands Prince and Palmerston. Palmerston had just returned to service following mandatory ten-yearly boiler lift and retubing. The service trains were in the vintage hands of sisters Linda and Blanche, themselves dating from 1893.
