It was all
happening at Campbell’s Platform this afternoon. First we had a goat train and
then we had a gravity train, a
particularly long and impressive one - apart from the head brakesman who showed a distinct lack of puff with his bugle. For a while I thought he was
going to forget his duty. The train marked the start of a weekend of
celebrations to celebrate the life of Alan Pegler OBE, the late president of
the Ffestiniog Railway.
