Over the weekend 5th to 7th of October the Ffestiniog Railway will be hosting 'Classic Ffestiniog' a tribute event to Alan Pegler who as we all know passed away earlier this year, throughout his life he gave the FR much support begining by becoming the majority shareholder of the company before setting up a trust to transfer his shares too. This is going to be a toys out of the box weekend presenting the opportunity to see lots of the bits of the railway it is rarely possible to see on a normal operating day, such as the Hunslet ladies in action, possibly one of the last few opportunities to witness the skill of an oil fireman and a rare public opening of Boston Lodge Works. One of the highlights will surely be the operation of the longest gravity train so far in preservation which all being well will surpass previous events by a fair length, see the attached photo of some of the new waggons that will be launched in to service. Public timetables and further details are available on the railway's website HERE. Hope to see you there.
