October 2nd @ 11:00 am - October 3rd @ 4:30 pm
Our annual railway gala; we are planning to have no fewer than six steam locos in operation. They will be residents “Stanhope”, Hudswell Clarke 1238 and Hunslet 1215. They will be joined by Avonside “Ogwen” which will be making its debut (subject to the last few jobs being finished) plus “GP39” (Hudswell Clarke) and “Sybil Mary” (Hunslet quarry tank). The latter two locos are visiting courtesy of our friends at Statfold. As ever, of course, there is the chance of last minute mechanical hitches causing changes – we are dealing with 100 year old machines, and they can be grumpy.
Our loco shed will be open for visits, and the WW1 Trench will be operating.
Admission will be £5 adults, £2.50 children, £12 family (2+2) and the admission ticket includes the first train rides – further rides can be purchased at our normal fares (adults £3.50, children £1.50). Trains will run from 1100 to 4:30 on both days.
