A belated very merry Christmas and happy new year to all who have supported our Group and diesel running at Llangollen in 2017.
Traction for the Winter Warmer event on 30th & 31st of December will be D5310, timetable available on the LR website. The below photo shows D5310 at Pentrefelin on 19th December being tested and fuelled ready for the event. The loco also received a much-needed coolant change to refresh the antifreeze.
