There is talk of the Polish 0-8-0T returning at some stage this year.
21 (Running as 300)
Should have added that 60163 is visiting in May.
Where will the J27 be if she's not at the moors? Is she to be made available for hire?
must put Middleton on my list, never been there
Did I read 6046 going there as well this year?
46521, 78018, 92214, 6990, 48624, 47406, 68067
48305/45305/73156 all due next year
Yes, the S160 is listed for the WSR SSG.
+ 70013 from around March if it’s granted an extension on its boiler ticket
45231 (Until the Pre-Spring Gala)
2018 should see the return of S15 - 506
I don't know, nothing has been said as yet, but 65894 has always been restricted to around 5 coach loads in the past, which means that it isn't much work for it in the summer (unless it double-heads with 29, which is similarly restricted or is top & tailed with a diesel) but I think 69023 is due for overhaul soon and 65894 might well take its place at Wensleydale.
I would recommend one of their steam galas. Lots of action, including freight, and the Balm Road branch is normally only used for galas.
The Middleton will be 260 years old in 2018 and continously worked for all that time - nobody else can match that
I think (hope!) you mean this year.
For a 7 mile line that doesn’t seem like that many locomotives. 34081 must do a very high mileage?
