|A replica of the 2-6-2T Manning Wardle tanks, to be named
Lyd, is being built by the Ffestiniog Railway at their Boston Lodge
works. Quite where it will run is not certain as the locomotive will be out of
gauge for the FR and unsuitable for operations on the Welsh Highland Railway.
Hopefully it will find its way to the embryonic new Lynton & Barnstaple Railway that re-started
passenger operation on 17 July 2004.
The partially built locomotive is seen here whilst on display to the public during Railfest 2004 at York.
