Four and a half hours of narrow gauge steam footage will be posted on the Facebook page, with all home fleet and a variety of visitors in operation.

Tim Gregson, one of the Virtual Gala organisers, told RailAdvent “We are really looking forward to welcoming as many enthusiasts as possible to our Virtual Gala on Saturday, June 13th. We’ve trawled through a huge number of contributions that were sent in to bring you over four and a half hours of quality video on the day.”
If you would like to help the Bala Lake Railway and get a DVD for yourself too, then purchase RailAdvent’s newest DVD release, we donate £5 from every sale to the BLR’s Appeal. Click here for more information.
