    https://www.churnet-valley-railway.co.uk/event/875/double-headed-s160s-weekend

    How do you follow up the first Double-headed S160s in the 21st Century? You do it again of course!

    Following 5197 succesful return to service at the Winter Steam Gala 2017, starring alongside sister 6046 on the Cauldon Branch, we are going to operate a weekend dedicated to our operational pair of USATC S160s on 6/7th May 2017.

    5197 and 6046 will double-head all day throughout the weekend, operating a train equivalent to the weight of 10 coaches from Kingsley & Froghall station to Ipstones Loop - therefore including the 4.5 mile climb of the Cauldon Branch!

    Timetable will be released shortly, as will advance tickets for which there will be an online discount.

    5197 wasn't being worked too hard being fresh into traffic. Should be in better form for May.
