Exclusive screenings of children’s Ivor the Engine have begun at Snowdon Mountain Railway. The railway has been given permission to show the colour episodes, filmed in the 1970’s, by the family of the creator Oliver Postgate.

Ivor the engine

The Snowdon Lily steam engine, built on the chassis from the original carriages of 1896, also had a special makeover as a tribute to Ivor. One of the Postgate sons Stephen, gave the family’s blessing at the launch and said:

“My dad would have been very happy to have Ivor joining in with the fun at Snowdon Mountain Railway. He always felt honoured that the Welsh people had embraced his and illustrator Peter Firmin’s little engine.”
