welsh highland railway 87 &143 beddgelert – rhyd dhu


This railway is no ‘Great little train of Wales’ it’s TOOO BIG for that tag! Beside the fact that it runs through some of the most stunning scenery in the principality,where else in the UK can you savour steam working this hard? Regulator in the roof stuff for 20mins and this is only half of the climb!!! This is one of the ‘must do’ railway journeys in the World, I cannot recommend it highly enough.GREAT Railway.
