The Conwy Quest steams through North Wales marking reopening of line
The engine chugged through despite one of the stations on the Conwy Valley line remaining closed due to flood damage

The house (Conway Cottage) in the picture of the full-length train is where I grew up ... my father would be turning in his grave if he saw the garden now, he always kept it immaculate, won the prize for best small garden at Eglwysbach Show on more than one occasion.  On the railway side the bushes have grown to spoil the view to the river as well.

Nice place to grow up in DVT      $good


Rhuddlan was disappointed when he saw the steam train at Abergele as it was tender first but Tellytubby saw it when it was returning in the afternoon and the engine was in front

We were fortunate to be given invites for the Conwy Quest.

Here are a few of my pics.

I was talking to Bri's friend Arfon at a coffee morning today and Arfon and Bri also had a ride on the narrow gauge railway from Blaenau to Tan Y Bwlch.       $good$

Tan Y Bwlch railway station is a really nice place to visit, it's well kept and has a cafe and there are many interesting walks nearby
