Russell on the Welsh Highland Railway

Members of the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway in Porthmadog, working with colleagues from the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway are pleased to announce the only surviving Welsh Highland Railway steam locomotive, ‘Russell’, built by the Hunslet Engine Company in 1906 will be running on a section of the original Welsh Highland Railway in 2019!It was all a bit hush hush…  especially from our in house photographers.. so I stole these from the website so at least you get to see Russell in action!

there is a video available on UTube – “Russell returns to Beddgelert” Couldn’t have asked for better weather for this historic event!
