Special narrow gauge freight train.

December 03, 2018 08:20AM
A special freight train was chartered on the two-foot gauge Brecon Mountain Railway near Merthyr Tydfil in South Wales, UK in September. The charter was arranged by David Williams and the train had a Maine Two-Foot look, photos by Chris Walker.

The train consisted of American built / American designed motive power and rolling stock. The locomotive was the Baldwin 4-6-2 that was rescued from South Africa and restored in the BM shop.

The line runs along part of the Taf Fechan Reservoir.
