    Hi

    Please can anyone let me know what engine(s) are likely to be rostered over the coming weekend as I'm in the area and am thinking of dropping in on Sunday

    Thanks

    [Had an excellent visit last Sunday. As promised one of the S160's was on. The first train was 25' late away from Cheddlesdon due to a problem with the vacuum pump, but following a spirited run to Froghall and a fast turn around was running right time by the time the second train came to return to Cheddlesdon. Found the volunteers on the station very friendly and helpful and I look forward to returning when the Branch is in use. A few photos attached for anyone interested.

    Was the air pump, but cheers for the positive comments. I was RO that day, and made sure the runround was quick as that is where we can recover time when needed. Just meant the crew had to eat breakfast on the go, oh well!

    Is Dimore Manor visiting for the gala weekend only, or likely to be staying a bit longer?

    TIA

    It is working footplate experiences and a photo charter after the gala leaving the CVR around the 31st October.

    It's only public services will be over the gala weekend

    Will there be a steam gala next Feb? Been trying to get to this railway for about 7 years now but hasn't happened as yet.

    Looks like Feb 3rd/4th as a farewell to 4277 before its boiler ticket expires.
