LYN - the World's newest steam loco - was the star attraction at the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways Super Power Gala on September 14th – 16th.

LYN was based on the northern section of the Welsh Highland at Dinas hauling special trains between Caernarfon and Rhyd Ddu.

Gorgeous engine...and a most impressive wall alongside it as well!

But things will be even better at the L&B's Autumn Gala this coming weekend when visitors to Woody Bay in south-west England will be able to see not one, but two L&B engines (LYN and LYD) on their home line hauling appropriate L&B carriages side by side for the first time in 83 years!

Trains services operate on both days every half-hour from 10:00am till 4:30pm.

Yes indeed, but dwarfed by Caernarfon Castle just out of view to the left!

Christopher,
Shh, you're stealing my thunder for the next post :)

It's too bad the CIC share offer cannot be subscribed outside of the UK.

Alex, that's not correct. I have just spoken with the Company Secretary who informs me that the L&B Railway CIC has subscribers in several countries around the world.

If you need assistance or further information please message me via this forum.

Unfortunately it says right in the CIC share application notes document:

This offer of shares is not registered under the Securities Laws of the United States or
Canada, and therefore no offer can be made to any person with an address registered in
those countries.
