People on Anglesey have been given a reminder of the age of steam today with the shipping of an ancient steam locomotive from Holyhead to Dublin
Princess was built to serve the slate quarries of North Wales. Now, she's being sent to Ireland to encourage visits between the two countries.
Ian Lang reports
The steam engine was on display in a north Wales pub until November last year, when it was put on show in London. 'Princess' will travel to Dublin by ferry from Holyhead Port later today.
The original investment in the Ffestiniog Railway was with Irish money so we thought it fitting that 'Princess' should travel to Ireland as part of The Gathering Ireland where she can be enjoyed by thousands of people at Heuston Station in Dublin.
'Princess' will be positioned at the ticket barriers so everyone who visits the station will get the chance to see her in all her glory as we have lovingly restored her to her former condition.
A 150-year-old steam engine is being shipped to Dublin to encourage more people to travel to celebrate the links between Wales and Ireland.
'Princess' will take pride of place at Heuston Station in Dublin for The Gathering Ireland festival.
The engine was built in London in 1863 and named in honour of Princess Alexandra of Denmark, who married King Edward VII when he was Prince of Wales. 'Princess' was originally built to be used in slate quarries in Blaenau Ffestiniog and was one of the world's first narrow gauge steam engines.

THI says the mid-Victorian terraced property backs onto the Roman wall of St Cybi’s Churchyard and finds have come to light as work has begun on the building.
An old butcher’s delivery bike was found in the cellar and, in a back room, an old well more than ten feet deep.
The ferry operator Stena Line - which operates out of Holyhead - says it's too early to say how many jobs will be lost in Wales follow a decision to make 200 workers redundant across Europe.
The positions under threat will be shore-based and not affect operations, says the company.
