Saturday 17th July
If you love diesel locomotives and ale, this is the perfect event for you. On Saturday 17th July, 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 our regular steam hauled service.
Full details will be posted in due course.
