Ffestiniog Railway – Britannia Bridge Crossing

Its not often I get to shoot, edit, upload and post a video all on the same day, this is one of those occasions. Today the Highways Agency paid a visit to the Ffestiniog Railway – Welsh Highland Railway to inspect the road crossings at the Britannia Bridge, Snowdon Street and, I guess, the roadworks crossing for the new A487 Porthmadog by-pass. This was a cold, damp, bone chilling day and the lack of people around meant that video conditions were pretty good. They were using a seven coach train with steam engine Merddin Emrys at one end and Vale of Ffestiniog diesel at the other end. First time I’ve seen trains crossing the Britannia Bridge and I am quite impressed with the finished result.
