In this weeks Throwback Thursdays episode we throw it back all the way to 20th March 2016, as we see Earl of Merioneth at Minffordd with one of the first trains of the 2016 season.

Earl of Merioneth is one of three Double Farlies that the Ffestiniog Railway has, along with Merddin Emrys and David Lloyd George, these engines are used throughout the year and especially at busy times as these engines can pull the heavier trains.
