Saturday 26th September
If you love diesel locomotives and ale, this is the perfect event for you. On Saturday 26th September, we will be running a diesel locomotive hauled service throughout the day where we will serve you the finest bottled ales to take with you, as you travel through the Bronte countryside in our compartment coaches (although there will be ONE open coach with minimum availability). This will run in addition to a vintage (pre-booked) steam hauled service.
