A restored Welsh-built steam locomotive believed to be one of the last of its type has made its way from Llangollen to Carmarthen.

The standard gauge loco known as Taff 28 was built in 1897 and completed its journey on the back of a lorry, via Cardiff Bay's Coal Exchange, on Friday.

It is going on display at the Gwili Steam Railway with the only Welsh-built standard gauge carriage.

The train was restored in workshops at Llangollen Steam Railway.
