The calendar for next year is a classic with a set of absolutely delightful photographs to mark the passing of the year. It has been on sale all year and has been selling well so don’t delay in getting your copies as we would hate you to be disappointed - The calendar is £7.
The 'Year in the Life of the F&WHR - 2014' Blu-ray and three DVD set is now available too with nearly four hours of HD footage of the railway in action. Among other topics covered, there are reports on all the special events and a chapter on the final push to finish the Cob widening and Harbour Station re-development. It also features footage of our locos on their trips to other railways including The Vale of Rheidol and The Lynton & Barnstaple. This is set to music but the rest of the programme features only the sound of the railway and its surroundings, however there are informative captions throughout. The three disk DVD set is £22.50 and the Blu-ray is £25.00.
Jonathan Clay has done us proud again with two new paintings for our Christmas cards. This year we have scenes which could only be from 2014. (If you don’t count the snowy scenery!) David Lloyd George is seen in the new platform at Porthmadog in its grey livery and on the other card Fiji is seen on the curves below Rhyd Ddu. As ever there are five of each design with envelopes in a pack for £5. Both the cards and the calendars have been printed in Porthmadog, the quality and service has improved and we have been able to keep the money in the town which is good for the environment and the local economy.
