With a busy July of running now complete, it’s time to start looking forward to our season finale in September.
We will have a B timetable running day on Saturday 9th of September, traction will be D5310.
It’s then all hands to the fuel pump for our Diesel Weekend on Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th September. This will include the full public debut of Class 47 1566 in BR Blue, working her first full day in traffic for over 5 years.
We are busy putting the final touches to the timetable but can confirm planned attractions are:
Traction: D5310, 6940 & the return of a very shiny BR blue 1566. 08195 is pencilled-in for shunter shuttles and a Sunday morning PLEG charter.
DMU: The ever-loud Class 104
5″ gauge miniature railway on platform 2 at Llangollen courtesy of WDSME. Traction should be a 27 and 47. New track and traction red pens at the ready!
A beer train should run on Saturday evening.
The timetable should be available soon and will hopefully include some proper length trains and a DMU drag. Please note all locos, workings and attractions are subject to the usual caveats of availability, operational constraints and b*sterd bad luck. Your understanding is much appreciated as it’s a while since we’ve done an event like this!
