Preserved ex- LNER No 4472 Flying Scotsman makes the first visit of an eastern pacific to Llandudno on Saturday 4th June 1966 when she worked a Gainsboro Model Railway Society Special from Doncaster.

She is seen here leaning into the curve at Llandudno Junction Level Crossings, passing the busy little signal box whose days were numbered with a new flyover in the offing. 

6G can be seen in the background.

4472 was serviced and turned at 6G before going on public display with two of the pullman coaches at Llandudno Station during the afternoon.

The special returned to Lincolnshire early evening and little did one think that "Scotsman" would become a regular on the North Wales Coast in the wake of the 1989 revival of preserved steam.

This photograph is on the front of the Recollections of a Steam Era(1950-1966) by H. (Harry) Rogers Jones.

further details can be found on "The Final Curtain" page of this web site.

The photo's in the four galleries were taken by Mr Henry (Harry) Rogers Jones, for many years a dispensing chemist and optician in Llandudno Junction. The majority, if not all, of the railway personnel based at the "Junction" were his one time customers at the shop and he was thus able to gain ready access to the nearby 6G shed (which was in clear view from the back of the shop) as well as frequent favours on footplates in order to further his long-held interest in railways and photography in general.

Mr Rogers Jones passed away just a week prior to his book "Recollections of a Steam Era (1950-1966) going into print.

I would like to thank Mr David Rogers Jones, for his kind permission for the use of some of his fathers photographs on this web site.
