Virtual Locomotive Roster for Weekend 2nd & 3rd May 2020

Back to 2014 and MR 4F 0-6-0 43924 and WD 8F 2-8-0 90733 will be on duty for this weekend’s virtual passenger services.

Unlike in past years the May Bank holiday in 2020 falls, not on the first Monday in May, this year 4th, but on Friday 8th. As such we need to adapt the past locomotive roster to fit. This coming weekend sees the introduction of two steam train service on Sundays. This weekend we travel back 6 years to 2014 when motive power was provided by MR 4F 0-6-0 43924 and WD 8F 2-8-0 90733 and the Saturday morning diesel service operated by the Class 101 diesel multiple unit.
