A Home For Wells Appeal
Over the past few years the East Lancashire Railway has been honoured to host Ex-Southern Railway Bulleid Light Pacific No. 34092 “City of Wells”. Since her arrival in 2015 the engine has been a stalwart of the railway’s line up, doing us proud in any weather and at any event, from snowy Santa Specials and sweltering summer galas to haunted Halloween specials and luxury evening diners. She’s become such a mainstay of our work here we would like to offer her a permanent home here at the ELR.
Within the last year or so the engine has been put up for sale and, through the sterling efforts of our generous visitors and volunteers, the East Lancashire Railway has been working hard to purchase her and add her strength to our own. We’re almost there!
