A similar picture to the above was posted on the Llangollen Railway’s official Facebook* page, with the comment that LUPTS had not visited the railway for 25 years. This elicited a comment “How can these people live so close and not visit for 25 years.” Two former Chairmen defended the honour of the Society – click here.
