Double departure from Minffordd Station
It's the FR Society's AGM day & the usual special train from London is awaited at Minffordd. (The British Rail line to Pwlleli passed below the Ffestiniog line about 200 yards away). Waiting to take members on to Dduallt are 2 trains headed by Double Fairlie loco 'Earl of Merioneth/Iarll Meirionnydd' & ex-Penrhyn Quarry loco 'Blanche'. This will be the first time the AGM specials have travelled to Dduallt - the 2 mile extension having only opened on 6th April.
