Virtual Locomotive Roster for Bank Holiday Weekend 8th – 10th May and Mid-week 13th May 2020

5820 and 43924 will be complementing each other on the virtual steam hauled services over the Bank Holiday weekend with our class 101 Diesel Multiple Unit operating the diesel services on Saturday and Wednesday

This week we take our virtual weekend back to 2018. Due to VE Day celebrations on the 8th May taking place across the UK, we will be operating a virtual Blue timetable on each day, so it will be steam locomotives on all trains, Friday and Sunday and an early morning diesel service on Saturday, with steam for the rest of the day. The steam services will be in the hands of S160 5820 being joined by MR 4F 43924.

The Saturday morning diesel railcar service will operate with the Class 101 diesel multiple unit. This week sees the virtual return of the Wednesday Diesel Railcar service on 13th May.
