Prince No. 2
Prince is the oldest working engine on the Ffestiniog Narrow Gauge Railway in Wales and also the oldest engine in regular service in the world! One of the first four locos built for the FR, in 1863, originally he had side tanks but was rebuilt to his current shape in 1892, with a large saddle tank.
These locos were designed to haul 50 tons of empty slate wagons uphill at 10 mph, but has now proved capable of much more than that.
Prince is seen here at the York Railway Museum where he provided rides on a specially laid 2ft gauge line for the 2004 Railfest.
