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
Sunday should be 5197. I'm the rostered fireman so feel free to say hello.
For an S160, I'll definitely be dropping in
Gins & Trains festival at Churnet Valley this bank holiday.
Steam/Diesel during the day, with 33102 then hauling a 7x coach evening service.
Discounted tickets after 4pm
[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!
Churnet Valley's annual 40s event "WAR IN THE VALLEY" returns, with an extended evening service hauled by 5197.
Timetable for the forthcoming Anniversary Gala now online
Is Dimore Manor visiting for the gala weekend only, or likely to be staying a bit longer?
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
Thanks for the information! Work is pressing that weekend, I'll try to sort a visit though..
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.
