Prince & Palmerston head 150th anniversary train
Veteran steam locos Prince and Palmerston, together representing 300 years of steam history, headed the 1015 and 1335 service trains on Sunday August 4th - the 150th anniversary of Princess' first steaming in 1863.

HRA directors Steve Wood and Mark Smith presented the loco crews with commemorative headboards to mark the occasion. The train, loaded to 11 cars tested the locos' abilities in very wet conditions, resulting in some spectacular steam action.
