Following on from the success of our Spring Steam Gala, we are delighted to announce the first guest locomotive for our Autumn Steam Gala … *drumroll*

LNER A4 60009 “Union of South Africa”

“Union of South Africa” will be one of the guest stars at our popular Autumn Steam Gala on the 14 & 15 October.

For those of you that need a Sir Nigel Gresley fix a little sooner than October, the locomotive will be taking to our tracks over the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend (14 – 17 April), subject to the completion of repairs. More information to be announced soon!
