Palmerston revisits old haunts - The Lure of Steam


Ffestiniog Railways No4 Palmerston revisits the Vale of Rheidol Railway, Palmerston was a regular sight on the Vale of Rheidol during the Great War and its visit was poignant during the Great War's centenary. Palmerston was originally hired by the Vale of Rheidol to cater for additional traffic in 1913, generated by the opening of a large Territorial Army camp at Lovesgrove, near Capel Bangor and other army camps near Devil's Bridge. Palmerston became a regular sight in 1914 and '15 when it was again hired to assist with vast increase of timber traffic over the line, the timber being used as pit props and duck boards to support the war effort
