Diana Clementson 14/12/1941 to 28/08/2014

Farewell Dianna, a lovely lady of many talents and interests including music, and working as steam locomotive crew at the Llangollen Railway and the Churnet Valley Railway. Steam railways were a big part of her life. She will be sadly missed.

Here's a picture I took of her on the Lambton Tank Loco just over a year ago at sunny Consall, on 24th August 2013. Click on the picture to see her delight in being privileged to fire a steam locomotive on such a fabulous day in this amazing valley.

Diana Clementson, 14/12/1941 to 28/08/2014

We lost another Churnet Valley volunteer on Wednesday September 9th when one of the railway's characters, Fred Brindley, passed away. Fred was usually to be found on CVR trains selling raffle tickets, and when I was doing a trainee guard turn only last week, he was proudly telling me how he had raised over £3,000 for the railway in a year.

RIP both.
