The 2016 Season was a little different, with Flying Scotsman taking centre stage in January and again in October too!
We had some great events including the Summer Diesel Gala and the Autumn Diesel Event in September was a belter with D213 joining the Bury based Class 40s. Thanks for your support!
Class 14, D9537 'Eric', is still away on holiday having travelling down to the Spa Valley Railway to appear at their Summer Diesel Gala in August and is staying on at the Spa Valley Railway for a little while, returning home in March 2017.
