photoblog image Merddin Emrys

Merddin Emrys


One of the older Double Fairlies on the Ffestiniog Railway. Merddin Emrys was built in 1879. It has been overhauled  a number of times and is now in a near original condition, being coal fired and was last returned to service in 2008.

The train is seen here approaching Minfford  Station on its way to Porthmadog.

Another fine shot Les, I wonder how that ladies picture of you came out.

Driver is a real poser Les,but so would i be, if ever getting the chance with one of these to play with for the day.
Les Auld: Great little engines Graham, the driver and fireman have to hang out over the edge as the boiler extends through the cab and leaves no room. It would appear that the fireman has to feed the fire when the engine stops at a station as he has to get out and fire from the platform.

Thanks for the comment.
A fine image but a bit too noisy and missing some deeper blacks and contrast in some areas. The composition is superb.
Les Auld: It was a late afternoon with a touch of drizzle Paul but I see what you mean, perhaps I over processed it a touch. Thanks for the comment.
