Taliesin Newly Repainted

30 July 2015

1999-built Single Fairlie Taliesin entered the carriage works in early June in preparation for a refresh of the paintwork. This quickly turned into a full repaint.

The opportunity has been taken to lighten the shade slightly.

The results are pretty magnificent and a tribute to the skills in the carriage shed.

Taliesin will be double heading the 1010/1335 services from Porthmadog on Monday 3rd through to Wednesday 5th August to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Prince’s return to traffic.
