Summer Gala

Join our steam extravaganza over 2 weekends this July

Home » Events in 2017

To commemorate 50 years since the end of southern steam we will have two weekends with Bulleid Pacifics and a fantastic line up of locos, intensive timetable, freight train and real ale bar – don’t miss out!

We think it is the first time since the end of southern steam that you can see EIGHT Bulleid Pacifics on a railway at one time. 

Four guest engines already confirmed: 

35006 - Merchant Navy Class - Peninsular and Orient Line

34053 - ‘Sir Keith Park’ - Battle of Britain Class

34081 - 92 Squadron - Battle of Britain Class

34052 - Lord Dowding - Battle of Britain Class

In addition to the above guest Bulleid locos we have four in restoration that will be on display: 

We are hoping to recreate the Bournemouth Belle diverted over the Mid-Hants Line - one of the Channel Island’s Tomato Special Freight train ran on the last day of steam pulled Lord Dowding. 

Also running will be a permanent-way train which will include a steam crane and some flat wagons with track panels. 

There will be a different permutation of trains on each Gala day - timetable to be announced next month (June)

Our home fleet: 

LMS Ivatt Class 2MT - 41312

Class 4MT - 76017
