Welsh Narrow Gauge Railways : As a young rail fan I was always attracted to railways with a gauge narrower than standard. I devoured books from the library on narrow gauge railways in all parts of the world, dreaming of the day I would be able to travel abroad and experience them myself. Of course many no longer survive but over the years I have been very lucky and have managed to see lots of narrow gauge action in many parts of the world. But in 2013 it doesn't get much better than the narrow gauge railways in Wales, especially since the Ffestiniog Railway has spearheaded the rebuilding of the legendary Welsh Highland. So this gallery features pictures from a number of Welsh railways but concentrates on the FR and WHR.

The 67s : The class 67 (EMD type JT 42HW-HS) was ordered by EWS primarily for mail traffic, which they worked away from the electrified network until Royal Mail abandoned rail, and EWS, in 2001. Since then they have continued to find work both on freight and, more recently, as frontline passenger power with Scotrail, open access operator Wrexham, Shropshire and Marylebone, Chiltern Railways and Arriva Trains Wales. In terms of livery most still wear the EWS maroon and gold, but a number were repainted for Wrexham and Shropshire and continue in the same livery for Chiltern whilst two wear the blue of DBS subsidiary Arriva Trains Wales. 67018 Keith Heller is in DB cherry red and sports a giant maple leaf in honour of its namesake, the Canadian CEO of EWS and DBS who retired back in early 2010. 67005 and 006 are in 'Royal' livery, 67026 sports a union flag on silver flanks and 67029 is decked in silver for use with the DBS Executive Train<br><br>
I think they are quite attractive machines as modern diesels go. Railfans nicknamed them Skips on account of their shape.<br><br>
This gallery celebrates their varied career, mainly taken since losing the mail contract.

HST : The BR High Speed Train, or Intercity 125 as it was marketed, is possibly our most successful class of passenger trains, having first entered service in 1976, and still beng used by four Train Operating Companies (EMT, East Coast, Arriva XC and FGW) and one open access operator, Grand Central. Over the years they've been extensively rebuilt, both mechanically and in terms of seating arrangements. Today the bulk of the fleet have been re-engined with MTU prime movers although the EMT allocated units are equipped with Paxman VP185s. They will continue in frontline service for a number of years yet, although electrification of the GW and Midland mainlines and the uncertain prospect of the Hitachi IEP may doom them by the end of the 2020s, by when they will have been in service, racing up and down the country for over 50 years.
