We’ve got that #FridayFeeling as we’ve got some exciting loco news to share! We are delighted to announce that 76084 will be joining us from Christmas to Mid-March and will be a guest loco at our Spring Steam Gala! Thanks to 76084 Locomotive Company, we look forward to welcoming her back ‘home’ to the North West! As if that wasn’t enough, the ELR will once again host Ian Riley’s Black 5s, with 44871 initially joining us from 1 January. Thanks to all at Riley’s for their ongoing commitment to the railway!
