Welsh Odyssey Part 2

Apologies is the delay in getting Part 2 posted.

I was rather pleased with the evening photos I had taken from Friday night, but they were nothing compared to what I was to see on Saturday morning. I left my B&B at 7.30am and took the short drive up to Cwm Prysor. Nature really knows how to do it!

The morning mist across Llyn Tryweryn was particularly atmospheric.

I then headed back down to Trawsfynydd to take some photos at Llyn Trawsfynydd and as dawn broke across the Rhinogs.

Back at the B&B I had a good hearty Welsh Breakfast, and headed off to Porthmadog. The original plan was to do the Welsh Highland. However I had decided to cut the weekend short due to my Dad’s health, and felt the WHR was going to be a touch too long at a 6 hour round trip, so I decided to travel on the Ffestiniog.

As we set out from Porthmadog, I really couldn’t believe how lucky I had been with the weather. The view across the Cob sums this up well!

After a truly spectacular journey, I decided to head home, via Cwm Prysor to get some close up shots of the remaining crossing gate and dry stone walls….. there were no trains today….

Although only a short trip, it’s left me feeling inspired to crack on with the layout. Things are coming together and I think it’s fair to say, with the landscaping to the front of the layout nearly formed, I’ll be starting the scenic work in the new year.

My focus now is to have the layout finished by the Summer, as Railway Modeller are hopefully coming up to take photos for an article I’m writing.

Happy Days! 🙂
