Vale of Ffestiniog Blaenau Ffestiniog 7 August 2002

Under a typically grey North Wales sky, Funkey B-B diesel hydraulic Vale of Ffestiniog stands at Blaenau Ffestiniog on 7 August 2002 waiting to depart for Porthmadog, although there is a distinct lack of passengers! Although since repainted green, it is seen here in the National Power livery, as worn by the standard gauge Class 59/2s. This also explains the Vale of Ffestiniog name, which ties in with the names of its larger cousins.
