Alongside the Llangollen Railway's Carrog Station was this short length of narrow gauge track (2' gauge) that was offering rides behind 0-4-0 locomotive Iorwerth. This was a freelance build in 2002 by Adam Barber. The boiler dates from the 1950s and was used in a bakery in Bangor and the engine has a single vertical cylinder with flywheel.

First Spring Gala Visitor Announced
We are pleased to announce that the first visiting guest locomotive for our 'Along Birkenhead Lines' Spring Steam Gala will be ex-LMS 8F No. 48624.
The 8Fs were one of the most successful locomotive designs of all time and were designed by William Stanier for the London, Midland & Scottish Railway. The design was chosen by the War Department for large scale production in the Second World War and eventually 852 members of the class were built. The 8Fs were no strangers around the Wirral and North-East Wales during the 1950s and 1960s, including hauling heavy goods train up the notoriously steep climb to the nearby Brymbo steelworks. In 1967, a now long scrapped member of the class, No.48697, hauled the final passenger train through Llangollen on an enthusiasts railtour.
No. 48624 is unique in preservation in that it is the only surviving example built at Southern Railway, being completed as part of the War Effort in 1943 at Ashford Works. The locomotive is normally based on the Great Central Railway in Leicestershire.
Further exciting locomotive announcements will be coming very soon!
