Update 416. Taliesin on the Welsh Highland Railway, 03/02/11

An Arriva Trains Wales Club55 offer was tempting me to have a day trip to Wales. Checking train times, I found it was possible to get to Porthmadog for a 10 mile round trip on the new section of the Welsh Highland Railway from Porthmadog.

Our first sighting of Taliesin was as our Arriva train crossed the narrow gauge line, it was waiting to cross the standard gauge track to head for the Ffestiniog Railway station. Walking down to the FR station, there was an opportunity for a few photos before the diesel hauled the train onto the Cob, where it was uncoupled and Taliesin hauled our train across the road on the new section of the WHR.

After our journey and back at Porthmadog a few more photos before the long journey home.

Not easy to get photos when travelling on the train & with such little spare time
