Stranded Barmouth trains transported by lorry

Two trains stranded in Gwynedd as a result of the recent severe storms have been causing something of a stir - as they rumbled through the town of Barmouth on the back of a lorry.

The two trains, with two carriages apiece, are being taken by road haulage to a depot in Chester more than 70 miles away.
