It had been a while since I had read the Ffestiniog newsletter - so it was much to my surprise when I read in last Winter's edition that Allan Garraway had passed away.  He was the first employee and General Manager of the restoration era, from 1955ish to 1983ish, overseeing the restoration of the entire line from Porthmadoc back to Blaenau Ffestiniog.

Glad he lived long enough to see the results of his efforts and even the Welsh Highland revival.
