The Mixed Traffic Gala is returning…
The Event will take a similar format to that in May 2019 when our diesel and steam fleet shared a three day extravaganza.
The event will take place from Friday 10th September though to Sunday 12th September.
- Friday 10th September : A diesels only day with a diesel guest, hopefully diesels from the mainline and a selection from the Home fleet
- Saturday 11th September : A mixed traffic day, representing the change over years from steam to diesel, a visiting diesel locomotive will join diesel and steam locomotives from the Home fleet.
- Sunday 12th September : Steam locomotives throughout the day on Sunday.
Many visitors won’t remember steam traction, so the Diesel days bring back memories of these heritage machines that worked right from the end of steam right up until recent memory – and in some cases continue to do so!
It is anticipated that each of our main sets will include a Real Ale bar serving a selection of Real Ale from local breweries, with hot and cold drinks also being served for you to enjoy during your journey with us.

Discussions among various groups are in progress and the gala planning team are aiming to bring something for everyone!
