New Old-style headlamps make an appearance

There is an ongoing project to build traditional style Ffestiniog Railway headlamps, jointly funded by the Ffestiniog Railway Heritage Group and Ffestiniog Railway Society.

Palmerston has had the lamp brackets slightly modified to accomodate the lamps and demonstrates how they look. They have been constructed to include LED light fittings and therefore be used regularly.

If anyone wants to buy another for a traditional FR engine, they cost around £400 to produce.
