The Welsh Highland Heritage Railway and the Leighton Buzzard Railway are pleased to announce that an agreement has been signed which will see Andrew Barclay DOLL visit Wales for the first time. Previously DOLL has only left Leighton Buzzard once before in May 2006 when it visited the Froissy - Cappy - Dompierre line in France with whom the LBR is "twinned". The month long visit will see DOLL operate on the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway in Porthmadog on selected dates in May and June. This will be only the second chance to see DOLL operate along side sister Andrew Barclay GERTRUDE since they both have been returned to working order. DOLL’s visit will enable her to take part in our popular May Bank holiday Gala weekend (5th and 6th May 2012) operating alongside GELERT, GERTRUDE and also during our new event for this year, the Family Fun Weekend (2nd and 3rd June.) The Galas will celebrate all things elemental, Earth, Air, Fire & Water. “All the elements needed to make a steam engine, all the elements needed to run a steam engine, an element of each to discover and explore.” Sunday 6th May and Saturday 2nd June will see Train services running on late into the evening, while the sheds will be filled with the sounds of live music, a BBQ and Beer. Evening tickets are available separately, or in conjunction with a day time or weekend ticket. May bank holiday will also give a chance to examine the progress being made in the restoration of the F&WHR NG15 134, the freshly completed Tender will be on display throughout the duration of the weekend, along with a stand from the WHRS.
