The Church Times says that a narrow gauge railway museum in northwest Wales is planning a round-trip excursion on Good Friday evening retracing by rail the fourteen Stations of the Cross.
The free “special” is being run in collaboration with Tywyn Churches Together, and begins in front of the cross bequeathed to the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum on Wharf Station by the Revd Wilbert Awdry, author of the Railway Series stories.
The narrow gauge steam railway is said to be the inspiration for the famous Thomas the Tank Engine stories originally created by the Rev.Wilbert Awdry.
Prayer and meditation at each Station will be led by the new Bishop of Bangor, the Rt Revd Andrew John, and by Mr Evans....
...Bishop John will give a blessing before the train returns to Wharf Station. “The buzz of our own service will not be different from the activity of that first Good Friday. I am delighted to be present,” he said.
The Revd Nigel Adams, Area Dean of Ystumaner, who will be the guard on the train, said: “It will be wonderful.”
