Winter Diesel Gala

Come and celebrate all the wonders of the diesel locomotive this winter, with our first big ‘Diesel Traction Action’ event of the year on the East Lancashire Railway.

This is your first chance in 2022 to see a fantastic display of our magnificent diesel locomotives as they hurtle up and down the ELR hauling passengers with an intensive timetable.

The line-up is as follows – all locomotives subject to availability.

  • Class 24 D5054
  • Class 25 25279 (Recently outshopped in BR Blue)
  • Class 33 33109 ‘Captain Bill Smith RNR’
  • Class 45 45108
  • Class 47’s D1501 and 47765

Ride as often as you like with a day rover. Our best value tickets can be booked in advance and will be available shortly.

Complete your day out with a trip on the special Beer-Ex. Gala ticket holders will be able to board this exclusive service which will run at the end of the day. Bottled beer is available to purchase on board so why not end your day in style?
