'Prince' waiting departure at Tan y Bwlch
'Prince' waits at Tan y Bwlch station to return to Portmadoc with the first of the afternoon's 2 AGM specials, see SH6038 : Double departure from Minffordd Station. The lack of run-round facilities at Dduallt meant that all trains were brought down by the previous loco to have gone up the line. The building materials in the foreground shows that work will soon start on the building of a proper made-up platform.
