WHR 100 test train success

Preparations for the joint WHR 100:SOUTH SNOWDON event have included running a train of Welsh Highland Heritage Railway stock to Beddgelert.

The evening run was undertaken in glorious sunny conditions, which ensured the train and landscape were seen at their very best.

Hauled by original WHR survivor Hunslet 2-6-2T Russell (Works No.901/1906), the rake of carriages used in the train were the replica Pickering Brake, Buffet Car No.10, replica Ashbury Corridor No.9 and Gladstone Car No.8.

There is the opportunity to ride this very train during the WHR 100:SOUTH SNOWDON weekend, when it will be steaming between Dinas and Rhyd Ddu (as South Snowdon is now known), alongside a train of vintage Ffestiniog Railway stock. This will be a truly special occasion, made possible by the efforts of those at the WHHR, who have worked tirelessly restoring Russell so that it could take part in what promises to be a monumental weekend.
