Mixed Traffic Gala

Our Mixed Traffic Gala will be held on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th July 2017, and will feature a variety of operating patterns, including mixed traffic workings (ie with passenger and goods vehicles in the one train).  All the locomotives will be drawn from our own fleet, and will include:

  • HC 1544 "Slough Estates No. 3";
  • NER 1310;
  • HC D577 "Mary";  and
  • HC D631 "Carroll". 


Saturday and Sunday Services

On both days a special timetable will be operated, providing an intensive service over both our main passenger line and the little-used Balm Road branch. Two train sets will be in operation, with one running as a mixed train with both passenger and goods stock.

There will be a variety of patterns of operation, including some trains that will have a locomotive at each end, and some that will be double-headed.  The first train will depart at 10.30 am and the last one will arrive at 4.30 pm. 

Full details of the timetable are available, which include the scheduled locomotives for each train:  click here to download this.

Special fares will apply for each day, namely £8 for an adult, £3 for a child and £18 for a family ticket (covering up to 2 adults and 3 children).  The various travel concessions that apply to our normal train services will, however, not apply for this event.

As well as our normal range of refreshments, including hot and cold drinks and sweets, we will have a range of sandwiches available on each day.
