That’s why it is so beautiful to go...
My dear Gezginruh,
thank you so much for being the first to comment this picture.
Many years of work have gone into re-opening this railway, and this was the first public train on this last part of it.
And such nice scenery too!!
Hi Peter another lovely image from this great railway and another "Like" here
Hi Peter a cracking shot here and just look at the weather looks like a great day for photography another like.Best wishes Alan
Hi Steve & Alan,
Thank you both very much for the visit & the 'likes'.
I really wanted the loco a little further onto the bridge, but the shadow of a roadsign spoiled that option. However, it is easy to go back here, and I'm sure that as summer comes, and the sun is higher in the sky, we'll have a few more!
But, yes, the Welsh Higland is now carrying passengers over the whole length.
Peter, so is the bridge where your place mark is for both autos and railroad? PM
Thanks for visiting. Yes, the placemark is exactly right, and you are right in that the bridge is used by trains and motor cars. What happens is that the red 'stop' lights at each end of the bridge activate, motor vehicle stop, then the train can use it. Unfortunately, the Google map is a few years old, and does not show the railway. This was the first public train on the rebuilt railway.
Superb shot, Peter. You nailed absolutely every aspect of this one. This is a beautiful advert and presentation of Gwynedd. The bright exposure, the train making its way into the picture with the flawless background... Just lovely.
Hit like and yellow star, of course.
Thank you Whoelius for such high praise, the likes and the stars. I am honoured.
Nearly everything fell into place that day. There were no clouds obscuring Cnicht, the sun was shining, and the train was on time! I'm sure that others will come to this spot for their pics too, as it is so easy, and I'm sure that many better ones will appear, but to be there for the first public train in a new railway, well, I was pleased to be part of remembering it.
