Ex-War Department Hunslet 4-6-0T No.303 (works number 1215) at Porthmadog Harbour station on 14th June 2019. The loco was about to haul its heaviest-ever load, a full rake of Welsh Highland Railway coaches, as part of a series of test runs. Be interesting to see how the loco performs on the L&B's 1 in 50!
