Livingston Thompson.

Livingston Thompson. 

The Livingston Thompson, a "Double Fairlie" 0-4-4-0T type locomotive (built in 1885 and operated on the Ffestiniog Railway), now restored as a static display at the National Railway Museum in York.

The Ffestiniog Railway (Welsh: Rheilffordd Ffestiniog) is a 23.5 inches wide (597 mm) narrow gauge heritage railway located in Gwynedd, Wales. It is a major tourist attraction located mainly within the Snowdonia National Park. The railway is roughly 13 miles (21 km) long and runs from the harbour at Porthmadog to the slate-mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, travelling through forested and mountainous scenery. The line is single track throughout with four intermediate passing places. The narrow gauge track allows trains to inter-work through to the Welsh Highland Railway of 1922 (operated by the Ffestiniog). The first mile of the line out of Porthmadog runs atop an embankment locally called "the Cob", which is the dyke of the Traeth Mawr "polder".

The railway company is properly known as the "Festiniog Railway Company" and this obsolete but contemporary spelling is the official title of the company as defined by the Act (2 William IV cap.xlviii) that created the railway. It is the oldest surviving railway company in the world (although not the oldest still working - a record which goes to the Middleton Railway), having been founded by the Act of Parliament on 23 May 1832 with capital mostly raised in Dublin by Henry Archer, the company's first secretary and managing director. Most British railways were amalgamated into four large groups in 1921 and then into British Railways in 1948 but the Festiniog Railway Company, in common with most narrow gauge railways, remained independent.
