Hi ys-waiz & Gezginruh,
thank you both for your visits to this picture, and for your likes and stars.
ys-waiz, I have had a quick look at your gallery, and will have a proper look soon. My last visit to Japan was 15 years ago, and things in your pictures are very different from what I remember.
Gezginruh, it is so nice to have you visit again, and I think you know our little railways very well by now! There isn't very much room in the drivers cab of one of these, so it is necessary to almost fall out at times!

Wonderful atmosphere Peter of this little engine belching out smoke and another YSL for you ~ Best wishes ~ nick

Thank you very much Nick for the nice words, the like, and the star. It is amazing how much smoke and steam one of these can produce on a cold morning, especially now they have gone back to burning coal. (And let us not forget there are two chimneys, and four cylinders all contributing!)

best wishes, stacy

Hi Stacy, Thank you very much for those imaginative words!!
This line is built on a continuous rising gradient all the way from Porthmadog to Blaeunau FFestiniog, and there are loads of cuttings like this, so on a windless day, and a fire that hasn't really go going, you have a fair chance of seeing plenty of steam and smoke. The catch is that the clearance is limited, so you must not, ever, try and walk along the line to find a vantage point.

Hi Clive, thank you so much for these nice words, and your visit. It is much appreciated.
I wish there was a way I could have recorded sound, and vibrations, but alas, not possible.

Hi Steve & Gerardo
Thank you both for looking at this little engine, and for the likes and stars. I really do appreciate when people look at the few interesting things our country has to offer.
It is really quite a hard job for these locomotives on such a cold morning, but a few more metres, and it can rest in the station, and relenish it's water.

Vielen Dank für Ihren Besuch auf unserer kleinen Eisenbahn. Es wurde in 1830 gebaut, um Schiefer aus den Minen zum Hafen für den Versand zu tragen. Diese Lok wurde 1879 erbaut. Natürlich, weil die Lokomotiven und Erdarbeiten klein sind, ist die Baukosten reduziert.
Nun, die Bahn nicht tragen Schiefer, nur Passagiere.
Thank you for visiting our little railway. It was built in 1830s to carry slate from the mines down to the harbour for shipment. This locomotive was built in 1879. Naturally, because the locomotives and earthworks are small, the building cost is reduced.
Now, the railway does not carry slate, only passengers.
I hope you can understand the German words!
Ich hoffe, Sie können die deutschen Wörter verstehen!

Thanks very much again for visit, like, and star.
A continual uphill gradient, cold morning, and coal fire are always good ingredients to make lots of steam and smoke, helped in this instance by two chimneys. Your high regard of the scene is much appreciated.

Thank you again for visiting our little railway!
As you may have guessed, I spend a lot of time looking for different pictures of it working.
Best Wishes from Wales
