June 22nd - 25th : Hunslet 125
The railway’s steadfast Hunslet ladies, Linda and Blanche, are 125 years old in 2018 and we are throwing a party!
Their centenary was marked in legendary style in 1993 with over a hundred siblings of all shapes and sizes coming to play. A lot has changed in their world since then with many more Hunslet restorations and repatriations, along with a few replicas to share the fun. Celebrations this time will be a little different but - with a full forty miles of railway - we still have the largest playground in the country for these enduring locomotives.
More details will be revealed in due course, but make sure you save the date for the narrow gauge event of 2018. Expect familiar faces, the return of old friends and some new arrivals.
