    Crewe Heritage Centre is having a 30th anniversary celebration the weekend of July 22-23.

    2017 could be a big year for anniversaries it appears.

    I think that is the info from 2016. The dates are the same as 2016.

    The two main enthusiast-orientated events at Apedale this year will be:-

    May 13 & 14 - Stanhope Steam Gala - celebrating the centenary of our flagship loco, Kerr Stuart 2395 "Stanhope". We will be announcing visiting locos as they are confirmed (rather than announcing the wish list and then apologising later...).

    October 7 & 8 is a new event for us - "Diesel Delights" which will show case our rather large IC loco fleet. We are planning to allow some of these veterans to haul passenger trains for this one weekend only, but will confirm details later in the year.

    As ever, full details will be announced at www.avlr.org.uk and our Facebook page.

    Regards,

    Amerton Railway's big steam gala is 24th and 25th June!

    There's going to be some excellent guests and possibly a hereto unseen engine!
