It could be in our Rocky Mountains, Les. A real beauty.
Les Auld: Apparently the engineers from the railroads through the Rockies came to the Ffestiniog to see how they had built the railway and it influenced the way the US lines were built. It's a small world. Thanks for the comment Ginnie.
We really enjoyed our September ride on the festiniog, this really sums up the railway Les.
Les Auld: It is a good ride down to PortMadoc Brian, and will be even better when the Welsh Highland link to Caernarvon is complete. Thanks for the comment.
