Colour-coordinated ladies

Ex-Penrhyn Railway Hunslets Linda and Blanche have emerged from the Boston Lodge paint shop in lined FR Green livery.

This is the first time the two ladies, which date from 1893, have appeared together in pristine matching livery. Their first public duty was to double head the 1015 ex-Porthmadog service train to Blaenau Ffestiniog on Saturday July 23.

Linda also hauled a special train on Saturday evening for F&WHR staff and volunteers to celebrate her full return to service.

The sisters are scheduled to double head a full ten carriage WHR service train from Porthmadog to Caernarfon and back as part of the Superpower gala in September - be sure not to miss it.
