Over the next few months we have plenty planned for our locomotives the operating days are summarised as follows -
D8001 is to remain at the Epping to Ongar Railway in regular operation on passenger trains, including special events including the London Transport Weekend on the 15th & 16th July and the Autumn Diesel Gala on the 23rd and 24th September.
20227 will work the Summer Season at the North Norfolk Railway including the mainline feeder trains as last year. The move to the railway is planned for early June travelling from Butterley with 20142, 189 the three twenties with D8 in tow for their gala from the 9th to 11th June. 20142, 189 and D8 will then return to Butterley, in time for their diesel gala.
Therefore 20205 and potentially due back from Norfolk 20189, will be available for the Midland railway Diesel Gala over weekend of the 17th and 18th June.
20142 and 189 will be based on London Underground at Ruislip from late June for ten weeks of contract work, its planned for 20142 in LT Red to return to the Epping to Ongar for their London Transport Gala mid July to work with 001.
20189 will remain at the Midland Railway, Butterley hopefully to work when 20007 returns to operation later this year.
It should be a very busy Summer with some really interesting opportunities planned, should you require any further information do not hesiate to contact us. Thanks to Steve Moores for the photo's of 227 operating over this weekend.
