WHR freight train near Hafod-y-llyn
One of the highlights of the Welsh Highland Railway's Super-Power weekend was the running of long freight trains that included a banking locomotive within the train consist. This practice was often observed in South Africa, from where the locomotives and wagons were obtained.
Here, we see a freight headed by NGG16-class Garratt locomotive No. 138 with sister locomotive No. 143 assisting mid-train. See also SH5944 : WHR freight train near Hafod-y-llyn
