Llangollen Railway starts the new season and the sun is shining

The first train of the new season left Llangollen at 1040 with the Class 104 heritage diesel railcar carrying families enjoying half-term for a ride through the lovely Dee Valley to Carrog.

The railcar offers best views of the line at this time of the year with its front and rear window positions so passengers can see where they are going - or where they have been.

The late winter sunshine enhanced the views of the valley with some trees and bushes showing the first signs of spring. After some winter management of the lineside vegetation improved views of the valley and its remoter areas have been opened up for passengers to enjoy the area of outstanding natural beauty.

At Carrog a 40-minute stop over allowed time for a hot drink in the station tearooms or a walk down the lane to Carrog bridge over the river Dee before joining the train back. Others stayed until a later train taking the opportunity to walk a section of the Dee Valley way.

A spokesman said, "The passenger numbers on the first train were encouraging with several families travelling to take advantage of the half-term offer when first child goes free and second half fare when with a full fare paying adult.

Trains in the second part of the week and at weekends will be with a steam engine."

We also tested the new run around loop at Princes Risborough - which will allow us to switch from 'top and tail' back to normal hauled services when appropriate. We also tested the refurbished loop at Chinnor at the same time! ... See MoreSee Less

The final visiting locomotive for our Spring Steam Gala is 'Coal Tank' No. 1054!

A perfect fit for our Welsh branchline bonanza, 1888-built No. 1054 was the last surviving member of its class, and was put into store at Abergavenny in the late 1950s where it was fitted with a snow plough in event of disruptive snowfalls during the winter months. It was brought out of storage to assist with the last passenger train over the Merthyr & Abergavenny Railway, a special excursion organised by the Stephenson Locomotive Society, which ran on 5th January 1958.

No. 1054 joins a mammoth cast of 11 engines, including; 813, 1450, 1501, 2857, 4144, 5619, 6430, 7714, 7802 Bradley Manor and 75069.

Appearing in its original LNWR livery, we cannot wait to welcome this 131 year old engine to the Railway for our grand season opener!

Vintage old photo showing,Crumlin Viaduct.- The Crumlin Viaduct was a railway viaduct located above the village of Crumlin in South Wales, originally built to carry the Taff Vale Extension of the Newport, Abergavenny and Hereford Railway (NA&HR) across the Ebbw River.
Hailed as "one of the most significant examples of technological achievement during the Industrial Revolution",in its 109 years of service until being dismantled in 1967, it remained: the least expensive bridge for its size ever constructed; the highest railway viaduct in the United Kingdom; the third highest viaduct in the world, after the aqueduct at Spoleto, Italy, and the timber viaduct in Portage, New York state.

828 at Llandudno Junction on 1st April 1994 backing down to take her place in the locomotive line up after having worked a special from Crewe whilst participating in the "InterCity Sunset Railtour". The "Inter City Sunset" event, which was held over several days, marked the end of British Rail and locomotives from each of the pre war "Big Four" companies and BR itself were used. 828 represented the Southern Railway. In the background are 5029 "Nunney Castle" (GWR), 46203 "Princess Margaret Rose" (LMS), 4498 "Sir Nigel Gresley" (LNER) and 71000 "Duke Of Gloucester (BR).
I was part of the loco's support crew on that day and was there witnessing the event (I think I'm amongst the crowd on the right hand side) and to see 828 there was something I'll never forget. She may be just a humble goods engine but she not only held her own amongst the assembled stars of the steam locomotive world, in my eyes she outshone them all!

This superb picture showing 828 in Southampton Docks by the Ocean Terminal and the QE2 during her time on the main line in the 1990s following restoration is now truly historical and totally unrepeatable. The Ocean Terminal has since been completely demolished, with only a tiny fragment remaining, and the QE2 is now permanently moored in Dubai following her withdrawal from service by Cunard.
I am the person nearest the front of the loco by the cylinders, doing the oiling round!
