    Fantastic news, especially the return of the Diesel Weekend (and some guest locos maybe too?) but the spread of round trips through the year is a great improvement. Well done all concerned, I look forward to them!

    Very good news. Looking forward to it and hopefully the LDG will gain some valuble revenue to boot.
