LITTLE ELIDIR

This little beauty is 'Elidir',a small steam train that was built in 1889.For nearly 70 years she was used for shunting slate from Quarry to depot,then she was stripted-down and re-built,and is now in use as the main little engine for the 'Llanberis lake Railway'.She is now a 'pleasure trip' engine,but this little old gal is spending her last years as a tourist atraction,but still working hard.I had the pleasure a few years ago of riding the footplate.She is a beautiful little engine.
