Anything Goes weekend

June 24th @ 11:00 am - June 25th @ 4:00 pm

As the name suggests, this is the weekend when pretty much anything mechanical is unleashed on the Apedale site. Trains will be hauled by a mixture of steam locos and some of our huge collection of internal combustion machines. The event field will be full of stationary engines, old vehicles, pretty much anything mechanical. If you have an old machine which you’d like to bring along – we’d be delighted to see you. Download the event entry form here.

Trains will run from 1130 to 4pm on each day, and standard train fares are charged. There is no fee for train ticket holders to visit the event field area.

Update 30 May 2023:- The steam locos working during the event will be Kerr, Stuart “Stanhope” and Orenstein & Koppel 5662. Diesel locos will work passenger trains as follows:-

Saturday AM – first train 1130 – Ruston “Vulcan”, then steam until last train (1600) worked by Hudswell, Clarke D558.

Sunday AM – first train 1130 – Motor Rail 22235 “Haslemere”, then steam until last train (1600) worked by Motor Rail 1320.
