Easter Sunshine and Trains

07 April 2015

Linda and Prince at Tan y Grisiau Earl of Merioneth

Easter Weekend was blessed by superb weather from Saturday, with glorious sunshine and warmth. This has continued into the following week.

The long weekend’s service has seen a daily three train service, with two normal corridor sets and a vintage set behind Taliesin. Earl of Merioneth was out of action on Sunday and was replaced by Linda and Prince, both facing downhill.

Here are some scenes from the weekend.
