The Lady and the Lyd

 

Last weekend was the Victorian weekend at the ffestiniog Railway in Snowdownia. By the time I arrived on Sunday most of the event was over but there were ladies in Victorian dress and suitably attired loco crews wandering around the station at Portmadoc, so some photography was possible in the fine afternoon weather.

 

The locomotive to the fore is Lyd, a new build replica of a Lynton and Barnstaple Railway Manning Wardle engine undergoing shakedown trials at the Festiniog Railway, Behind it is Blanche, one of the lines stock, originally built for the Penrhyn Quarry Railway (PQR) in 1893 for the princely sum of £800.

Smashing period effects here Les: I can't wait to see Lyd on the L&B - wouldn't that be wonderful!
Les Auld: I would indeed Chris, Lyd really looked splendid. Thanks for the comment.
What an interesting picture Les.
Les Auld: An interesting place Chad, thanks for the comment.
My word you had a busy weekend Les, three galas each miles from the other. I just love the way you have given this an old fashioned look, won't it be great when Lyd is running at Woody Bay on a regular basis.
Les Auld: Some 700 miles I think Brian, and another 400 this coming weekend, busy indeed. Lyd looked really splendid and should give a good account on the L&B. Thanks for the comment.
Very well produced. You could be a time traveller!
Les Auld: Hopefully there is still plenty of time left for me to travel Bill, thanks for the comment.
