From the interior of a tunnel, looking towards the light at the end where a loco stands, the tops of tipper wagons can just be made out in the foreground.

Sometimes when trains run frequently on the Moel Rhos (usually in the summer months) I’ll leave a train in the tunnel, to save taking it off the tracks, but to give some shelter from any showers in the hours between running sessions. This pictures was taken through the northern tunnel with a train of full gravel tippers, poised to be called back into action.
