RD9064. Fresh from overhaul and still in grey undercoat but now converted to coal firing, Double Fairlie 0-4-4-0T DAVID LLOYD GEORGE at Porthmadog Harbour Station. Other than test trains, this was its first day of public appearances. The works grey primer is the same colour that was worn by another Double Fairlie, TALIESIN, when it was first outshopped after rebuilding in 1956. Saturday, 3rd May, 2014. Copyright © Ron Fisher.
