Thanks to everyone who supported our 1960’s Weekend, which was another very successful event with takings up on last year. Both D5310 and 6940 performed well and the 37is seen ready to depart from Glyndyfrdwy on Sunday 24th July.
There was little time to recover from the busy weekend on Monday morning, with Allelys due to collect D5310 and transport her to the Spa Valley Railway. A serious shunt was required to clear the reception road, which then had to be repeated when another wagon turned up at short notice to collect a brake van we had just moved out of the way. Nevertheless, the loading was successful:
and D5310 is now safely on shed at Tunbridge Wells ready for her summer holiday in Kent. Photo courtesy of Jonnie Wesson at the SVR.
Sample her in action in Kent from next Thursday at the SVR’s superb 4 day diesel gala, where there is an excellent range of Sulzer machines and others to sample:
And don’t forget our next and final running day of the year at Llangollen on Sunday 25th of September, which will be handled by 6940.
