The driver is a lady! and a good job she made of things too!
We were subject to a half hour delay due to the preceding train becoming derailed at the Barmouth Ferry end of the line. It was interesting to see the breakdown train hauled by this tiny Hunslet locomotive disappear up the line with lifting tackle and crew. Half an hour later we were allowed to proceed on our journey.
All in all a lovely day was had by all and I will most definitely be paying another visit soon.
