130 in steam at last!

During the afternoon of Friday 29th January, Garratt 130 was steamed for the first time since 1985.

This has been a long and painstaking rebuild, and all credit must go to the people involved – The people at Dinas and Boston Lodge, and also the staff in the paint shop who have done a superb job.

The loco will soon undertake test runs to iron out and problems, but should be available for the commencement of Welsh Highland Railway services when we’re permitted to start them.
