RUNNING DAYS - 14th/15th JULY 2018

The 2018 operating season got off to a very late start for 47401, with just a supporting role in June's Type 5 centred diesel gala under its belt so far. However we are pleased to announce a full weekend's running coming up, Saturday 14th features four round trips (MRB's Timetable "A" starting 11:00 ex-Butterley) and on Sunday 15th there will be two train running (Timetable "B") shared with the Class 108 DMU in addition to a road transport gala. Extra diesel running has been implemented due to the hot weather and the associated lineside fire risk involved with steam locomotive operation.

First update of the year, and the team has been cracking on with 401's roof repairs before the running season gets underway. A few more photos taken at the end of December 2017 and in January 2018 have been added to the 2017 and 2018 Gallery Pages.
