Palmerston at Porthmadog Harbour Station, Gwynedd
Palmerston simmers on the run-round loop, ready for a forth-coming departure. During busy weekends, like the "Quirks and Curiosities" event, Harbour station can become very congested, with shunting plus train departures.

‘Palmerston’ is named after Viscount Palmerston - a Liberal Prime Minister - and was one of the original four 0-4-0 engines built by George England in 1863/4. She was constructed with a domed boiler, benefiting from the trials of the first batch of these locomotives delivered. In 1880, she was then fitted with a saddle tank to improve adhesion.
