Llanuwchllyn Express is a special edition of the journal from The Bala Lake Railway Society.

Launched to coincide with the BLR/BLRS/BLRT ‘Bala Re-Railed’ event, the new 32 page journal is packed with exclusive content. Includes a peek at the proposed designs for the BLR’s Bala station, unseen images from the final days of standard gauge steam in Bala with articles from BLRS supporters who were witness to those events, and insights from the very earliest days of Welsh narrow gauge steam from John Huxley and, in quite possibly the most fascinating article the LE has ever carried, insights from the very earliest days of the Bala Lake Railway by one of the men who built it! The journal features over 30 photographs and illustrations.

This set also includes five limited edition colour postcards depicting the locomotives of  ‘Triassic’, ‘Holy War’, ‘Chilmark’, ‘Meirionnydd’, and ‘Maid Marian’.
