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 the assisting locomotive (Garratt No. 143) passing the camera. See also SH5944 : WHR freight train near Hafod-y-llyn.
