Welshpool &Llanfair

Passing the site of the old Goppa Halt in July 2008 is no 19 CFI764.425.
This scene is timeless on The Welshpool & Llanfair railway.

Co - ed note - This Resita (Romania) built 0-8-0t arrived on the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway on 19 June 2007. Following a complete overhaul in Romania the locomotive took a 5 day trip across Europe, on a lorry, to be delivered to the railway. When built the loco was given the number 764.425 but has become No.19 in the Welshpool fleet. After a few months of running in as delivered form, as was always intended, No.19 was fitted with a Lempor exhaust ejector designed by Nigel Day and manufactured at the railway's Llanfair workshop. Unlike the other members of the W&LLR fleet there was no requirement to maintain the original chimney appearance so more freedom in the design was allowed which gives an overall edge to this ejector compared to the others fitted at the line. It has also considerably improved the appearance.
