Diesel Enthusiast Day 4 Oct




Withdrawal symptoms for lack of diesel running? Your wait is over! We're running 3 Diesel Enthusiast days in September with a different class of traction each weekend. On Sunday 13th we kicked off with our immaculate Class 37 D6948 courtesy of the Growler Group. Next up on 20th was our Class 24 5081 not long back from its bogie refurbishment and on 27th it was the turn of Class 47 Freightliner 47376. On Sun 4th October we'll be running the 'Peak', 45149.

On each day we'll be doing 3 full round trips of the line, starting and finishing at Toddington - that's 84 miles plus.

Pre-booking is essential to guarantee your seat. Diesel traction only on these days - no steam services.

Your ticket will entitle you to ride all day. You'll board the train at Toddington for a 1000 departure and will arrive back at Toddington on the last trip at just after 1700.

Tickets cost £30.


You'll also be able to pre-book a 'picnic' meal delivered to your seat when the train passes through Winchcombe at around 1240. Our café at Broadway Station will also be open between 1100 and 1500.
