Bent­ley back in the pic­ture

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

A well-known 1950 MkVI Bent­ley has re­turned to a Welsh lo­ca­tion more than 50 years af­ter its last visit.

Rail­way pho­tog­ra­pher Ivo Peters was recog­nised for his trav­els in his Mid­night Blue 4.25-litre Bent­ley and it of­ten ap­peared in a sup­port­ing role in his pictures and films.

On 26 Septem­ber 1961, Peters vis­ited the Pen­rhyn Quarry Rail­way at Port Pen­rhyn in NHY 581 to take pho­tos prior to the rail­way clos­ing the fol­low­ing year. On 18 Septem­ber 2016, the Bent­ley re­turned to the ex­act same spot.

‘Much has changed in 55 years but the old en­gine shed still re­mains,’ says the car’s cur­rent owner, her­itage rail­way di­rec­tor Ju­lian Bir­ley, who is re­vis­it­ing lo­ca­tions where the Bent­ley was pho­tographed in the past.
