Over the weekend of 25th-27th August 2017, the Bala Lake Railway held their annual steam gala, celebrating George B’s return to steam.

Unfortunately, George B failed on the Thursday before the gala, and meant an emergency replacement had to be found, and was found in the form of Hunslet ‘Hugh Napier’, from the Ffestiniog Railway / National Trust.
