The Railway Men 2 ~ Black & White Sunday


Here’s another portrait from our Victorian day out on the Talyllyn Railway in June. Looking at their website this morning I see they’ve got a very special trip coming up next month – The Halloween Steam and Scream. Oh what a hoot. I think I want to go. It’s my birthday too. There will be a choice of two Steam and Scream trains departing from Tywyn station at 5.15 and 7.15 on several October nights including the 31st. Everyone can dress up as ghouls, goblins and witches; there are prizes for the best carved pumpkin lantern, and you can book a feast at the railway cafe.

Join us for a fun spooky evening train ride along the Talyllyn Railway to the haunted woods at Dolgoch, says the blurb.  Those woods are pretty spooky in broad daylight, but on a dark autumn night in the Welsh hills…Watch out for the Hessian Horseman  and his Celtic brother. Yikes! And double yikes!


Now please visit Paula at Lost in Translation for more B & W Sunday portraits.

  1. A great portrait. It would be hard to feel spooked even on Halloween if such a down-to-earth-looking man was in charge. I love the background – I’m not a fan of portraits without context.

  2. He he he, I was hoping for one of those chaps. The pingback did not work this time. How odd. I hope my comment will not be spammed cause I really, really like this post, Tish. Thank you.

      1. I only know that it happened to many of us, and it took a chat with one of WP assistants and a few emails to sort this out. It made me very peeved.

  3. Oh, please do, Tish! I’m looking forward to it already 🙂 🙂 And early happy birthday greetings in case I forget 🙂 I was just thinking that he looks like somebody’s nice old uncle, till I got distracted by the rest of the post.
