Cost: Free of Charge

A visit by two steam locomotives from Wales on a visit to promote the Ffestiniog Railway.

This year at King’s Cross they'll focus on their heritage, showing two locomotives: A ‘Quarry Hunslet’ locomotive from the Victorian era – Velinheli, and Chaloner – a vertical-boilered locomotive built in 1877 by de Winton of Caernarfon, whose factory was a stone’s throw away from their brand new purpose-built terminus station.

Both of these diminutive but deceptively powerful steam engines were used to transport slate around the local quarries. They have now been lovingly restored to working order, keeping heritage alive to educate the younger generations.

The locomotives will be on display in the ticket hall until Sunday February 24th. For the duration of the visit, staff and volunteers will be on hand to talk to the public and answer questions.
