All aboard the Llangollen train

Passengers got a rare view from the driver's seat when a special train was in service on Llangollen Steam Railway.

The railway runs two auto coaches - and while the loco provides the power - the coaches, complete with driver's cabs, are situated either side of the engine.

From the leading coach, the driver can control the train - and passengers can watch - meanwhile, engine crew on the footplate continue to maintain power in the loco.
