I see the first visitor has been announced - Schools Class 'Repton' from the NYMR (assuming her overhaul is completed in time) Can we hire the Maunsell coaches from the Bluebell to match?

That would be an ace idea.

A "big four" gala with one guest loco from each company in the right livery each paired with our own sets of LNER, LMS and GWR coaches plus a hired in set of Southern coaches would be quite a spectacle. A bit limited in LMS liveried locos at the moment, I believe the only big locos at the moment being an 8f, a crab and Princess Elizabeth, which is currently out of service. Maybe one for a few years time when 6201 is operational and the overhaul program on set N is finished.

There was a post on the official FB saying the next two would be announced on Monday. A comment suggested that the two visitors haven't visited the SVR before, narrows it down a bit.

PostPosted: Tue Jun 06, 2017 8:47 am    Post subject: Preview day Thursday Reply with quote

I am looking into getting a ticket for the goods train brake van on the Thursday preview day.

I have done this in the past, but cannot see anything online for this at the moment, only that goods train brake van rides (& footplate experience) are running on the Thursday.

Has anything been announced yet, as I am eager to make sure I have tickets, as accommodation and time off are all sorted.


Thanks in advance

From the SVR website:

Autumn Steam Gala - Working Timetable

Ideal for the steam enthusiast, our detailed Working Timetable booklet provides full details of all train movements, including passenger, light engine and goods, which locomotive will be working which train and the locomotives to be used each day.

Use this option to purchase a Working Timetable. This can be added to your shopping basket when you purchase travel tickets.

Working Timetables will be dispatched by post in early September.

5.00 each.

Then click on link to place order
