Locomotive Failure means Cancellations

Brakevan rides have had to be cancelled on Sunday 24th and Monday 25th May, due locomotive failure. The site will remain open for static display, with the museum, shop and cafe open on Monday 25th. There will be no admission charge.

Number 10 developed a leaking washout plug as steam was being raised on Sunday morning. This plug is unfortunately in an inaccessible place, making a repair difficult (it is thought that the threads need to be tapped, but there isn’t enough room to get a tap in place.) Hopefully the locomotive will be repaired in time for our next open day on June 28th.
