Welsh Highland Railway 87 at Pont Croesor station
Welsh Highland Railway 87 at Pont Croesor station
87 runs round its train at the temporary southern terminus of the WHR.
This is one of 4 similar Garratt articulated steam locomotives used on the WHR, which were built for South African Railways. This one was built in Belgium in 1936. See LinkExternal link .
They are believed to be the most powerful 2 foot gauge steam locomotives ever built and are clearly suited for hauling heavy trains over the steep gradients and tight curves of the WHR.
