Early annunciation extract from the SVR web site

B12 heading back to the Valley!

We're thrilled to announce our headline act for our Spring Steam Gala in 2018!

Returning after its last visit 20 years ago, LNER B12 No. 8572 will star at the event from March 16th - 18th, alongside a number of other visiting and home-fleet engines.

Built in 1928, the majestic 'Wandering 1500' in striking Apple Green livery will be paired with our beautiful rake of LNER Teak carriages for the event, and makes a rare appearance away from its North Norfolk Railway home.

Unique in being the only British inside cylinder 4-6-0 to be preserved, No. 8572 last visited us in September & October 1998, starring in the Autumn Steam Gala of that year, once again paired with the Teaks.

Plans are afoot for a further two visiting engines to join No. 8572 at the event, which is also set to star British Railways Standard 4 No. 75069, which is due to return to service later this year following overhaul.

We're sure you're as excited for the event as we are, and you'll be putting this date in your diary!
