Hunslet Training Day

A crew training day on the War Office Locomotive Trust’s Hunslet 1215 today meant two locos in steam and lots of diesels buzzing around the site. It felt like a Gala day at times! The objective of the day was to get as many as possible of the Apedale resident crews familiar with the loco to make rostering simpler. All involved agreed that it had been a very worthwhile day, and many of the worries about using what feels like a large and intimidating loco have been removed.

Following the training session, the Hunslet will be operating all train services at Apedale tomorrow (Sunday 8 May) – trains run from 1130 to 4pm.
