Bentley back in the picture
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.
