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.
