The Welsh Highland Heritage Railway has announced that Russell has been in the sheds recently for an upcoming special event.
At Gelert’s Farm, the volunteers have been fitting a spark arrestor to the 2-6-2T Hunslet locomotive.
This is in preparation for the special event with the Ffestiniog Railway on 21st, 22nd and 23rd June.
The Welsh Highland Heritage Railway in Porthmadog will be running ‘Russell’-hauled trains to Beddgelert on the Friday and Saturday evening.
For readers who are wondering, the locomotive didn’t need a spark arrestor when it did its test run as back in November, the weather was damp.
