Loco News for The Golden Banker and The Magnificent Severn

The Golden Banker

Following news that 50017 has been sold, 50050 will work the train solo from Bristol Parkway to Plymouth Friary and Buckfastleigh. We hope to have two Class 37s from Colas to work the train between Burton-on-Trent, Bristol Parkway and return.

We have had to reduce the train length somewhat so there will be limited seats available. Do please book early once we have a green light. We are just waiting for confirmation that the South Devon Railway will have access to an air-braked loco that can assist with shunting our train and getting 50050 on the correct end for the return to Totnes, on Saturday 31st August.

 

The Magnificent Severn

As for D1015 Western Champion, we are told it is hoped that mainline testing of the loco will be carried out during the summer. WCR have no rolling stock available to us through the summer months as they have a very full order book, so we are look at possible dates in October/November to run The Magnificent Severn to Machen, the Dean Forest Railway and Sharpness.

 

Thank you all for your patience and keen interest in these two tours...we can't wait to see you on board for two tours featuring interesting routes and brilliant British Rail motive power.
