(1) Route & loco confirmation required. John Jennings has a colour image of loco 6000 taken on the climb up Hatton bank complete with reporting number Z29 and a small headboard “Festiniog Railway Special” hanging at a slight angle above the reporting number frame; it is suspected that 6000 may have come of the train at Shrewsbury.
