7F to the rescue to replace B1… (Update 13/3/18)
We are truly grateful to our
friends at the West Somerset Railway and Somerset & Dorset Railway
Trust for the last minute hire of 7F No. 53808 for our Spring Steam Gala
Visiting for the first time in British Railways
black, the 1925-built 2-8-0 will cover the services scheduled to be
hauled by B1 No. 1264 on all three days.
Joining us for a flying visit, the engine last steamed along the Valley in 2014.
No. 53808 joins fellow visiting engines Kign No. 6023 King Edward II, B12 No. 8572, A1 No. 60163
Tornado, BR Standard 4MT No. 80072 and Haydock Foundry Bellerophon for
our BIGGEST steam gala yet! Pre-book your tickets now.
We bet you didn’t see that coming?
we have been advised over the weekend that LNER B1 4-6-0 No. 1264 will
not be able to attend our Spring Steam Gala from March 16th - 18th.
The Thompson B1 Locomotive Trust indicate that although the winter
maintenance work has been completed, there are still some jobs left to
undertake before the locomotive would be fit to visit other heritage
railways or work over Network Rail.
This announcement will not
affect the movement of No 60163 Tornado from the North Yorkshire Moors
Railway, and Tornado is expected to arrive at the Severn Valley Railway this week to run as scheduled.
