We have an interesting collection of heritage diesel locomotives, one of which is illustrated below, and these services are arranged specially to give you opportunities to see some of them running.

For each of these heritage diesel days the normal timetable and fares will apply, and on each day one of the locomotives will be in operation.  We shall only fixing which locomotive will be operating on each day a short time in advance, once we can be reasonably certain that we will be able to operate the advertised locomotive. 

We have six heritage diesel days scheduled for 2019, as follows.

  • Saturday 13th April 2019 (as part of our Community Day.
  • Saturday 11th May 2019.
  • Saturday 8th June 2019.
  • Saturday 10th August 2019.
  • Saturday 14th September 2019 (as part of the Heritage Open Day).
  • Saturday 12th October 2019.

We do not expect to arrange any others this year.

No liability is accepted for any loss, inconvenience or delay caused, either by having to operate with an alternative locomotive or by an alteration cancellation or suspension of the Railway's train services.
