2016 Special Events

Our Spring Industrials day was well received by our visitors, everything going to plan although we did include a couple of impromptu re-railing demonstrations on the industrial railway line during the afternoon.

Plans are well in hand for the rest of our regular programme of railway events. At Gala Weekend there will be two rarely seen visiting steam locomotives (click the Gala Weekend link to see which ones) while the second of our two Industrial Trains days which are now well established, will give everyone a chance to see locos from our collection which are not always visible to the public. Once again the Autumn event will be part of the Museum's larger Autumn Historic Transport Gathering which should have something for everyone.
