Another of our volunteers was successfully passed out as a Pacer Driver - congratulations!
The last weekend of our regular 2023 season closed with our mixed traffic gala, which saw GWR 56XX 0-6-2T 5619, BR Class 08 diesel No. 08757 ‘Eagle’, North British Diesel Hydraulic No. 27414 ‘Tom’ and class 144 Pacer No. 144013 all in action with an intensive timetable in operation. We had a lot of visitors, despite it raining for most of the day, and everything ran to time despite having to switch locos at Spring Village between arrival and departures at Spring Village.
We also had a visit from our friends at Telford Exotic Zoo. We are looking to partner with them for some special events next year, allowing our passengers to hear about, and get close to animals during the train journey. This initial visit was to see if it was feasible, and it was a success. We look forward to working closely with Telford Exotic Zoo in the future.
Thanks to Doug and John for the addition information and photos used in this update.
We are now closed until Saturday 28th October, when we will be running our ‘Phantom Pacer’ Halloween trains. Look our for more information on our website and Facebook pages soon.
