Ffestiniog Bizarre
Welsh Narrow Gauge Railway History


About this title

Ffestiniog Bizarre! On a Spring weekend in 2010 the Ffestiniog Railway was host to a splendid gathering of one-offs, oddities and curiosities on the two-foot gauge railway. While steam locomotives, dating from the 1860s up to the present day, were the highlight, this gala event also showcased some highly unorthodox internal combustion machines, plus, unforgettably, the forces of nature as motive power: wind and gravity. Blessed throughout by fine weather, the weekend provided many memorable scenes, ranging from the blessing of new 2-6-2T Lyd by the Bishop of Bangor, to a ride all the way from Summit to Porthmadog by gravity slate train. All are brought together in this programme, along with some historic clips of original scenes in Ffestiniog history commemorated here at Quirks & Curiosities Weekend. Altogether a colourful, unique and unforgettable experience. This documentary programme contains much previously unseen archive.
