Ex-South African Railways NSGG Class 16 2-6-2+2-6-2 No.138 passing the water tank as it arrives at Beddgelert station with a Welsh Highland Railway train from Caernarfon to Porthmadog Harbour on 22nd May 2016. 138 was built by Beyer Peacock in 1958 and returned to the UK after withdrawal from service for restoration at the Ffestiniog Railway's Boston Lodge works. Originally in green livery, it was temporarily withdrawn in 2007 for full overhaul and boiler inspection and returned to service in its new crimson livery in 2010. (In common with the Ffestiniog Railway, WHR trains cross on the right at stations with passing loops.)
