Trainspotting...

Recommended Posts

We've had lovely weather in North Wales for the past 10 days - cold but sunny. On Sunday I spent several hours on the piece of the Welsh Highland Railway that we've already reopened...

nice train, nice photos ...... where is the location of this train?

 

Hi Stephan - in North West Wales (Snowdonia National Park).

I like the first one most, because the driver in the steam looks like an old BW-photo and around the steam there is the coloured landscape, so it looks really like a arriving time-machine.

Cheers,

Eckart

Well done and nice series especially the first in the stream

Where is it ?

 

The first two were taken at the Welsh Highland Railway station in Caernarfon, which is on the Menai Strait, in North Wales. The Strait runs between Ynys Mon (Anglesey) and the North Wales mainland. The line is currently 12 miles long, ending at Rhyd Ddu (photo 3) on the lower southern slopes of Snowdon.

 

Come Easter 2009 we will be opening a further 13 miles, taking the line down through Beddgelert and the Aberglaslyn Pass to Porthmadog, where it will join up with the Ffestiniog Railway and create a 40-mile 2-foot gauge line through the Snowdonia National Park. The Welsh Highland Railway Project
