The Point  of It is
The Point of It is
Signals on the Cob allow engines to run in and out of stations at Porthmadog and Boston Lodge (?). Here, a steam loco that will pull the 09:30 train to Caernarfon waits to come into Porthmadog station alongside carriages. A diesel will then pull train out of station onto the Cob and steam loco will be connected on the other end for the 3-hour journey to Caernarfon.
