This wasn't the move I was expecting, but 7714 was shunted out to allow the unloading of "Prince" from the Ffestiniog Railway today.

Not easy getting photos from outside, but you can see how it was delivered to the site.

I did take a few photos of the 3 service trains, will add them sometime soon.

(Photos of 7714, 4566, 5764, 7812 & D3022 just added)

I have saw something on Nat-Pres that Prince will stay at the Engine House for a period of 12 months. It will then move back to Ffestiniog, where a full overhaul will start to get the loco back in steam by 2013.

Yes, also mentions a 12 month stay on the news page of the SVR site.

That's the way to do it!!

Perhaps the SVR news page referring to Prince at The Engine House should be updated to include:- ....as seen on TV in (the above prog.)

(subtle hint for extra publicity?)

Ffestiniog Railway Number 2 Prince has now been removed from the Engine House and has returned to the Ffestinog Railway for a full overhaul ready to celebrate its 150 anniversary in 2013

My understanding is that the old gentleman may have been responsible for a certain re-arranging of the front wall at the Engine House. Oops!
