Remarks & Notes 
0-4-0 TT tank steamlocomotive with tender # 2 "Prince" of the "Small England class" of the Ffestiniog Railway in Beddgelert (on the line of the Welsh Highland Railway) during a photo charter. The locomotive was built in 1863 by George England and Co. Overhauled in 1881 with cast iron weights. In 1890 a half-open cab was added. In 1892 a full cab, new boiler and saddle tank were fitted. Prince was withdrawn with a worn out boiler in 1936. In 1955 after preservation, Prince was the first steam locomotive restored. In 1962 new frames and cylinders were fitted but Prince was withdrawn in 1968. In 1980 Prince returned to traffic with superheating and a larger cab fitted and converted to oil firing. In 2013, Prince was again overhauled and converted back to coal firing.
