Unfortunately, due to a number of steam locomotive failures this week, the following scheduled steam-hauled services will be operated by a heritage diesel engine this weekend only.

Saturday 20th August:
Kidderminster departures: 11.15am & 3.00pm
Bridgnorth: 1.25pm & 5.25pm
Sunday 21st August:
Kidderminster departures: 10.30am & 2.15pm
Bridgnorth departures: 12.40pm & 4.30pm
We aplogise for any inconvenience and disappointment this may cause.

For more information on our locomotive rosters, follow the link below:

I believe the following to be correct from reputable sources on FB and Nat Pres:

7812 - Front right hand spring's 2nd & 4th leaves broken and defective brick arch. Washout then nearly due
1450 - unspecified defect
7802 is on washout/repairs
1501 is away
2857 "was taken out of service on Tuesday after the left hand piston was found to be slightly loose in the crosshead and will be out for six weeks or so as it will undergo a full V & P".
