56171 & 50416 Ty Newydd 26 June 2010

The unique Wickham & Co Class 109 DMU 56171 & 50416 round the curve at Ty Newydd on the Llangollen Railway with the 11:15 Carrog to Llangollen service on 26 June 2010, during the line's Railcar Gala. A completely non-standard design, the Wickham units were very well built and had an unusual Art Deco style high quality interior finish. Only five twin car sets were built, and apart from this unit, which survived in BR departmental service, the rest of the class were amazingly sold to the Trinidad & Tobago Railway Company!
