In April 2012 ex Penrhyn Quarry locomotive "Linda", now running on The Ffestiniog Railway, called at her old home in Port Penrhyn, Bangor, Gwynedd.  

Origionally the port engine shed for The Penrhyn Quarry, Linda's old home is now a work shop for a mussel dredging company.  Linda was on route, albiet on the back of a lorry, when it was decided to call for a photo shoot.  Unfortunately there are no rails leading to the shed now but it was quite a site to see Linda return home briefly.      

Thanks to Scott Metcalfe, a Shipwright who is based next door to the old engine shed, for the photos.
