This is the last part of a journey of a 180 tonne transformer that has come from Croatia and arrived on Black Rock beach by barge on its way to the Power Station at Trawsfynydd.
Metal tracking was laid right up to the barge to enable the Mammouth tractor unit to reverse right into the barge to attach it to the trailer unit. Time was crucial as the tide was on the turn, and the tracking had to be picked up straight away following the exit of the transformer. It was then transported by the truck, with police escort going through the high street of Porthmadog, on its way to the power station.
There were lots of onlookers, both on the beach and as it weaved its way over the crossroads on to the high street and beyond.
