The Magnificent Severn - D1015 Western Champion

D1015 is currently minus power units but the third unit has now arrived from Germany.


The loco owners now plan to install two newly refurbished engines so when D1015 returns to service, she should be in very fine form indeed. With the engines removed the opportunity has been taken to give Western Champion a very smart new livery of BR Blue with yellow warning panels. Once the power units have been installed and tested, it will be time for a mainline test run and then we will be able to peg a date for The Magnificent Severn.


This tour takes in some hard to reach route miles plus it includes a stop-over at the fascinating Dean Forest Railway with all proceeds being donated to Cruse Bereavement Care - Thank you for your interest & support.


Meanwhile, plans for our following tour, currently proposed for Saturday 31st August 2019 are almost complete and we hope to announce details very soon.
