There is an Irish connection with the Festiniog in the 1830s original railway was promoted and financed by Dublin business interests and was very profitable with a monopoly on the slate traffic out of Bleanau until LNWR and GWR built lines into the area,


Princess is pretty much in the same condition as when she last ran in the 1940s some bits may date back to 1860, the England locos were fairly standardised and parts swapped around within the class.


The Festiniog is basically a small gauge main line railway and locos are basically worked flat out the England locos may be small but have a nicee exhaust
