This evening I’m in X Factor avoidance mode, for those of you who don’t know what the X Factor is, don’t worry, you’re much better off that way!
To ensure I can’t hear any of the noise emanating from the TV I’m trawling YouTube with headphones on. Tonight I’ve stumbled across something I’ve not seen for years.
‘Festiniog Holiday’ is a programme I can remember seeing on TV when I was quite young. I can recall watching it quite vividly, so it must have caught my attention at the time, although it must have been a repeat as it was filmed in the year I was born.
A few years later I had my first taster of narrow gauge railways by having a ride on the FR behind ALCO 2-6-2T ‘Mountaineer’, so this programme depicts pretty much what my first narrow gauge experience was. It’s just a shame its not an hour long…
Anyway, here it is, enjoy!
