As the smoke clears from the Diesel Gala, we look forward to the next event, which is our “Services in Support” weekend – July 9 & 10. This weekend sees us mark the contribution made by all of the UK’s services, both military and civil. We will welcome exhibits showing off the “blue light services” and historic military equipment. Apedale boasts the UK’s premier collection of railway equipment from the First World War, and this weekend is the opportunity to see it at work. WW1-era locos will haul passenger trains. Freight trains will see both ww1-era and military trains from later years demonstrated. Visitors can also tour our replica Trench, and learn a little more about the experiences of soldiers during the Great War.
We are still taking entries from those wishing to exhibit at this event – please visit here for an entry form.
