Over the weekend of 28th April 2017 to the 1st May 2017 the Ffestiniog Railway held their Quirks and Curiosities event, this is the sequel to the event held in 2010.

A lot of visitors were announced and made their way to the Top Left-Hand Corner of Wales for the 4 day event – with a visitors coming all the way from France! See the full list of visitors and home fleet which were in action by clicking here.

In this film, we have action from across all 4 days of the event and were filmed around volunteering duties on the weekend.

As you can see from the link above, there is a lot of locos, and an intensive timetable was in operation throughout. Look out for the night trains, freight trains, double headers, shuttles and also the cavalcade!

We film this video on a Panasonic VXF990 and edited it on Cyberlink PowerDirector 14 Ultimate.

See below for a calendar view of more events at the Ffestiniog Railway!
