Dave Scotson – updated

Dear All,

It is with the greatest of sadness that we have to inform you of the death of our Society Treasurer, Dave Scotson, during the night of 31st December 2023 – 1st January 2024. He had been ill for some time.

Dave was elected Society Treasurer at the 1988 AGM and did an outstanding job ever since. All of us on the Committee will miss him as both a colleague and a friend, as of course will a great many others at the Bala Lake Railway, the Talyllyn Railway and in many other places. The Committee will be sending Dave’s family a letter of sympathy in the next few days.

Below is a copy of a post that recently appeared on Facebook, giving some details about the funeral arrangements.

Kind Regards,

Mat P.
