100K donation sees new carriage launched on the Ffestiniog Railway

The latest addition to the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways' carriage fleet has entered service thanks to a generous donation from a supporter.

Born in 1945, Margaret Ritchie died in 2013 and had been a regular visitor to the railway over a period of many years. She and her friend David Ward loved the area, the railway and the people of North Wales. She left £100,000 in her will for the carriage and David subsequently launched an appeal which generated a further £30,000, allowing work to start on another new carriage based on the same design.
