THE FINAL CURTAIN
BACK TO HOME PAGE
The curtain is
about to fall on the Steam era at Llandudno Junction.
It is Saturday morning October 1st 1966, and the final loco, Black Five 45050
prepares to leave the shed for the very last time.
6G is now deserted, the coal wagons are empty and most of the men have moved on.
In a few more
moments it will all be over, the hiss of steam gone forever, and in the
empty building we are left alone with our memories.
