Photographer's Note

Garratt is a type of steam locomotive that is articulated into three parts. Its boiler is mounted on the centre frame, and two steam engines are mounted on separate frames, one on each end of the boiler. Articulation permits larger locomotives to negotiate tighter curves and lighter rails. This Garratt of Welsh Highland Railway was built in 1937, and was originally used by South African Railways. Here we are having a break at Rhyd Ddu. Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, is in the background.
