Lady Carol Grice has sent in this photograph at Bala Lake Heritage Steam Railway, with a touching tribute.
“My Dad was a steam locomotive enthusiast and I was pleased to be able to take over his Membership on the Bala Lake Heritage Steam Railway. This year my husband and I got the dream experience of riding on the footplate around the lake on Alice.”
“The people who tirelessly work on preserving all the engines are to be commended on keeping all our dreams alive.”
