WAR ME­MO­RIAL FOR FFES­TIN­IOG

Steam Railway (UK) - - NARROW GAUGE NEWS -

A me­mo­rial to the Ffes­tin­iog Rail­way em­ploy­ees who par­tic­i­pated in the First World War will be un­veiled at Tan-y-Bwlch on Novem­ber 11.

As far as can be de­ter­mined, 18 FR em­ploy­ees en­rolled for ser­vice dur­ing the war and two of them lost their lives in France. All will be re­mem­bered on the me­mo­rial.

Sev­eral stan­dard gauge rail­ways erected memo­ri­als to their fallen em­ploy­ees, but none of the nar­row gauge lines did. The FR me­mo­rial has been funded by the Ffes­tin­iog & Welsh High­land Rail­way Trust.
