Remarks & Notes 
Double Fairlie 0-4-4-0 T steamlocomotive "Merddin Emrys" of the Ffestiniog Railway is pulling a very long freight train with many empty slate transport cars along the Tanygrisiau lake, after leaving the 262 meter long New Moelwyn tunnel. Merddin Emrys was the first locomotive to be built by the Festiniog Railway Company in its own workshops at Boston Lodge and the third FR Double Fairlie. Merddin Emrys was built in 1879 to the design of George Percival Spooner and has spent its entire working life on the Festiniog Railway. When the railway closed in 1946 Merddin was the only double engine still available for service. "Merddin Emrys" is named after a legendary Welsh wizard (more often spelled Myrddin Emrys) who later became the basis for the wizard Merlin of Arthurian legend. This was a photo charter train for FarRail Tours.
