A steam-hauled special train chugged along scenic North Wales and into Chester yesterday.
With hundreds of passengers on board, the Welsh Mountaineer and its vintage coaches also attracted a number of spectators who lined the way at stations along the line, including Llandudno Junction and Chester.
The day trip from Preston to Blaenau Ffestiniog and back was organised by heritage rail operator The Railway Touring Company.
The visit comes just a month after The Flying Scotsman, one of the world’s most famous railway locomotives, made a special excursion from Crewe to Holyhead.
In February, the Royal Scot also visited the region, following a major £1m revamp.
Built in 1927, this was the train’s first mainline journey following a three year revamp which ended late last year.
