'Prince' approaches Tan y Bwlch Station with engineering train
'Prince' approaches with a train conveying rails & sleepers. After stopping for water it will head up the then unopened line to Dduallt where the materials will be unloaded. Track relaying was in progress to allow the extension to Dduallt to be reopened on 6th April 1968. 'Prince' was a bit underpowered for most of the passenger trains so it was often used on trains such as this.
