Michael Portillo rides the Ffestiniog...

Back in June, British TV personality Michael Portillo spent two days on the FR filming an episode of his Great British Railway Journeys series.

Michael travelled from Blaenau Ffestiniog to Porthmadog, hauled by Double Fairlie David Lloyd George, named after the Liberal politician. The irony was not lost on the former Conservative cabinet minister.

The episode, which features in the Ledbury to Holyhead segment of the series, will be broadcast this Thursday, January 11th on BBC2 at 1830. It will also be available on the BBC iPlayer for several days afterwards.
