Diesel Day was introduced successfully in 2016 and sees the railway’s steam locomotives given the day off, all services hauled by heritage internal combustion locomotives and including extra freight workings.Badger was one of a trio of locomotives at Shotton that were rescued for preservation by Statfold Barn.Peate’s wagons carried coal between Welshpool and his Llanfair facility in the railway’s yard.While used extensively by standard gauge companies, private owner wagons were very rare on the narrow gauge, with only the W&LLR and the Staffordshire-based Leek & Manifold Railway, closed in 1934, known to have employed them.It is believed that it came from the carriages scrapped by the GWR in the 1930s.Remarkably the axleboxes are correct original items dating from 1902 – they were acquired by the Talyllyn Railway after the W&LLR closed in 1956, and returned to Llanfair after being found during a clear-out of the TR’s workshops.

Among those contributing to the project were members of the Peate family, still well known in the district, and Shrewsbury-based coal factor J A Smallshaw, which supplied J Ll Peate in 1903 and still supplies the W&LLR today.The wagon was launched into traffic with a special train on Saturday 15 July, and many members of the Peate family were present to travel on the train and to see their ‘family wagon’ make its debut.The wagon is likely to be a popular addition to the W&LLR’s Vintage Trains, which now run as mixed rakes recalling what would have been normal practice between 1903 and the end of passenger services in 1931, and helping to fulfill part of the W&LLR’s mandate as an educational charity.This event features large scale models, the majority powered by live steam.Badger, built by Hudswell Clarke in 1971 to work at the Shotton Steelworks on Deeside, will be the first visiting locomotive to attend the Llanfair Line’s annual Diesel Day on 23 September.
