At 2am, the @festrail crew shunted two tiny Welsh steam locos and a lovely Victorian carriage into Kings Cross station, much like #titfieldthunderbolt. They’re here on display for #walesweeklondon - do pop over and say hello to the volunteers all week!

Our carriages have been Spring-cleaned and their comfortable seats await the arrival of passengers; the Buffet Car has been re-stocked, to provide our popular 'at-your-seat' refreshments service; fires will shortly be lit in our steam locos to ready them for their task ahead...— Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways (@festrail) February 15, 2019
