Flying Scotsman runs between Porthmadog and Caernarfon

The 1100 Welsh Highland Railway Porthmadog - Caernarfon service on Sunday October 7th carried a genuine Flying Scotsman headboard, on loan from the National Railway Museum in York, in honour of Alan Pegler.

Alan Pegler was the man who rescued both the Ffestiniog Railway and the locomotive Flying Scotsman, currently under restoration at the NRM.

The previous day, a memorial service had been held for Pegler, who died earlier this year, at Tan y Bwlch station, one of his favourite locations on the railway. His friends and family travelled in the First Class Pullman carriage, Bodysgallen as the train crossed Britannia Bridge in bright sunshine to the sound of bagpipes.
