Don’t miss 60009 “Union of South Africa”!
Soon to cease her running days and head into display, 60009 “Union of South Africa” visits this weekend and beyond for the first in what will likely be her last series of appearances in steam. Loco enthusiasts won’t want to miss the chance to get up close and personal with this fan favourite engine.
Eagle eyed visitors should try to spot the Springbok, a commemorative plaque donated to the engine in 1954 by a South African newspaper to pay tribute to her name.
The engine will be running three return trips daily on a blue timetable 29 - 31 May and a green timetable on 2 - 4 Jun. The best way to experience the journey is with one of our great value Day Rover Tickets. Book online now and make a saving.
