    As it seems to be this years gala trend. Heres a list of where to see Caledonian 419 over England this year.

    24-25th February 2019: Chutnet Valley
    8-10th March: East Lancashire Railway
    29th-31st March: Swanage Railway
    5th - 7th April: North Norfolk

    And possibly more!

    Rumors consist of Didcot Railway Centre and possible trip to the foxfield however NONE of these are confirmed and are only rumors.

    Both of those are news to the SRPS! There are other railway's she will visit this year, but best to wait for an official announcement rather than second guessing!

    Just because you ‘heard from social media’, doesn’t mean you should go ahead post it on a forum like Nat Pres. This forum has however many thousands of users, many of whom will take what they read on here as gospel and bother the railways in question.

    I rather like that Caley 419 may still have a bit more of a tour!

    Is if you view yourself as a responsible poster / contributor to this forum. Not everything needs to be published / talked about on her. At times things are only agreed in principle, and releasing details before i's are dotted / t's crossed cause upset and can change positive talks for the worse.

    You're only the Messenger if it's confirmed. Otherwise you're the Gossip.
