An exclusive evening of diesel photography is to take place on Friday 12th July 2024 at Toddington locomotive shed on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway. This unique event, which is scheduled to run between the hours of 19:30 & 22:00, will feature an impressive lineup of the railway’s home diesel locomotive fleet, including visiting Sulzer Type 2 / British Rail Class 26 No. 5310, courtesy of the Llangollen Railway. A real feast of historic BR diesel traction.

Additional lighting will be provided to illuminate the locomotives in the dark, and some members of the diesel fleet will run idle ‘on-shed’ to enhance the atmosphere and nostalgia. Access is by ticket only, from 19:00 onwards. This special photographic evening is limited to 30 places.
