The Engine House is closed on June 20th
We have some very exciting plans for The Engine House this year, including moving a few engines in and out!
On Wednesday 20th June, The Engine House at Highley will be closed as we move 8F No. 48773 from Highley to Kidderminster for our upcoming Last Days of Steam event on August 4th.
Whilst the 8F is at Kidderminster, Great Western Railway tank engines No. 4566 and No. 5764 will be moving in, and taking up residence for a period of time. These locomotives have been out of service for a number of years, and have been stored inside Kidderminster Carriage Shed awaiting overhaul.
The third and final move will be re-positioning Black 5 No. 45110 next to the doors, ready for transit to Kidderminster at the end of July for its starring role at our Last Days of Steam event alongside 8F No. 48773. On its return, it will be on display in the carpark at The Engine House for August.
We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause, but we're sure you'll love seeing the two new engines inside our Visitor Centre.
...and don't forget to tune into the action online!
Whilst The Engine House will be closed throughout the day on Wednesday
20th June, you'll be able to settle back and watch the goings-on all day
