Earl of Merionneth at Porthmadog


Photo Information
It might look like a toy train on a model railway but this narrow gauge beauty is on the Ffestiniog Railway, a serious railway operation which attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors to Snowdonia every year. Here the double ended Fairley loco Iarll Merionnydd (get your tongue round that English speakers) is seen bringing a train from Ffestiniog into the harbour station at Porthmadog last summer.

Nice one.

Fun and well done - the RR man extending his arm "unsterilized" the image, transcends cute and becomes impressive - LIKE it, - t
