'Prince' with the gravity train, about to turn onto Cae Mawr: 12.14, and running a few minutes late.

I then made my way, at a leisurely pace, to Whistling Curve, via part of the Welsh Coastal Path, including a short detour to check out another path. The two mile walk saw me arrive at 13.10, just in time to hear an up train. I jogged the last twenty yards to the brow of the hill, in time to see 'Prince' going past with the gravity train! I estimated that the train had covered three miles to my two, and was running well over an hour behind schedule.
