Visitors:


We are very pleased to announce the visit of Freightliner Class 66623! 


66623 will be joining us in Freightliners new corporate colour scheme which will shine in the summer weather! We understand, this will be 66623’s first ever Passenger workings which makes this visit rather special!


Our thanks goes to Freightliner for the loan of the locomotive and we look forward to seeing it at the head of our service trains in June!


All locomotives and rolling stock are subject to availability.


The narrow gauge Golden Valley Light Railway will be operating during this event using a variety of diesel locomotives from its collection. Please note a separate fare is payable on this railway.v
