Three-legged dog regularly walks six miles to ride train

A three-legged dog has become a regular attraction on board a train. Despite losing a leg in a car accident Peggy the Jack Russell often walks six miles (9.7 km) from her home in Rhewl, Denbighshire, to Berwyn station. She joins tourists on the train and can ride up to seven-and-a-half miles (12 km) of track through the Dee Valley.
Owner Dilys Lloyd regularly gets phone calls from the guards, asking her to collect Peggy from Llangollen station.
Mrs Lloyd, a retired teacher, said: "She loves going for a walk and appears fascinated by the trains, especially if she can have a free ride.
"I miss her and start calling out her name. When she doesn't come, I know she has gone again.
"She has probably followed walkers to the train station and got on board. The next thing I get a call from the station.
