Participatory Event

Our annual and well known four-day Summer Diesel extravaganza, which is a major part of our 20th anniversary year, will commence at 09:30 on Thursday 3rd August and see a variety of locomotives in action over the four day event. We hope to be able to theme the Thursday much closer to the event, watch this space!

The first visiting locomotive for the 2017 Summer Diesel Gala is Class 33/0 D6501 courtesy of South Devon Diesel Traction. The visiting Crompton, so named after the locomotives electrical equipment, is the first to the line in British Railways Green livery.

The second visiting locomotive our diesel extravaganza is Class 20 D8188 courtesy of the Somerset & Dorset Locomotive Company. This locomotive brings us a 20 in our 20th year, usually based at the Severn Valley Railway is making a trip away to us for a couple of weekends. These very popular locomotives are now quite a rarity in preservation with a lot seeing service on the national rail network.

Along the line will be a lineup of 20 real ales and 5 ciders, most will be available from our bar car 'Kate' which is located on set A of our trains.
