    Event now available to book on the webpage. The full roster is yet to be confirmed. 6 of the steam fleet (6990, 73156, 78018, 46521, 48305, 92214 and 68067 to choose from), the green DMU and a diesel locomotive each day.

    Did see something on the new GCR diesel group on Facebook that D8098 is provisionally pencilled in for Saturday and D123 on Sunday. But check back on the website at a later date for the full line up.

    Website updated this morning to state the timetables are due to be uploaded this evening. Will send links when they are uploaded depending whether someone else beats me to it.

    D8098 is rostered for Saturday and D123 on Sunday as now confirmed.
