Just a note that Wikimedia Commons has a ton of FR images now, so there may be some images better than the current ones we're using (at least for the steam locos - photos are thin on the ground for others). Anyway, take a look at commons:Category:Ffestiniog Railway and see if there are any that should be changed. -mattbuck (Talk) 23:42, 21 August 2008 (UTC)


Topsy was built in the Boston Lodge Works, but not for the Festiniog Railway, but for Charles Easton Spooners private track. As such it does not belong in an article on FR rolling stock. See article at The FR Wiki --Keith 19:55, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Welsh Pony / Prince / Palemrston[edit]

In July 2010, the company General Manager put out some feelers to the FR Society community regarding the possible restoration of Welsh Pony. The response was very positive. NOW some detailed investigation has to be carried out BEFORE any major amount of finance is committed to its restoration. If the project is feasible, and finance gained, then it is hoped to have it in steam for its 150th birthday
Prince has for a long time been classed as the oldest working steam engine in regular service by various sources. Because its bolier ticket has expired, doesn't mean this promotionary title will be lost for ever.
Palmerston, delivered some time later, cannot take the title just because it was the next delivered. (spell corrected)--Keith 22:58, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

IP Edit reversions[edit]

Amendmentss made by "IP address only editors", which havn't been noted in normal company or supporter channels will be reverted until it becomes public knowledge. This would be under standard practice that the information is not verifiable. This is in particular relation to recent chnges in the status of locos. Welsh Pony is currently (23rd October 2010) under consideration to be restored. No official decision has been made, nor finance allocated, for such work. --Keith 20:22, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
