About the site

How many times has a discussion or thoughts about the Bala Lake Railway been going on where you ponder if ‘I have a picture of that somewhere’, or wondered when, or if, a certain something happened. Well folks, this is the site for you, where maybe your own personal collection of pictures of the railway may come into use.

We ask that you search through your prints, slides and digital photographs of the railway or of locos associated with the railway, no matter how recent, as even yesterday is history and go through the upload process. Every item is gratefully appreciated.

To help us and everyone else, when kindly uploading your pictures there are some information requests which will ease us catalogue them as much as possible.

By being kind enough to uploading your pictures you are giving permission to the railway and associated bodies (BLRS, BLRT, MMLF) to be able to use your pictures for use in publicity / books etc. Credit will be given to you as mentioned in our Licensing and Privacy Policy below


In order to upload images, you will need to apply for an account, using the registration form. Please email if you have any questions.


We will asking all users to contribute images to us under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 (CC-BY BY 4.0) License.
