60th Anniversary of First Trains with Prince

60th Anniversary of First Trains with Prince

On August 3rd 1955, Prince hauled its first passenger train of the restoration era.

It entered regular passenger service two days later.

To mark the 60th anniversary of this landmark in steam preservation, the 152 year old Prince will double head the 1010 and 1335 departures from Porthmadog on Monday 3rd, Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th August.

This is an addition to the Summer of Fun already advertised.

Keep an eye on the loco roster to ensure you find Prince in action.
