Weekend Shed Tours Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th May

Volunteer members of the Boscastle team will be offering informative tours of the Loughborough Locomotive Shed on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th May.

Due to Saturday morning being the AGM for members of the Boscastle team, the tours will begin at 1.30 pm; on Sunday from 11 am. The precise timing of the tours will be subject to demand due to the large number of visitors expected for our Goods Galore gala.

Party size is limited at the discretion of the guide.

Please assemble outside the loco shed door and await guide.

Tours last approximately half an hour; please allow 10 minutes to walk to the shed prior to the tour and 10 minutes to walk back again.

YOUR CHANCE TO SEE RESTORATION, OVERHAUL AND REPAIR WORK IN PROGRESS AND HEAR ABOUT THE PLACE OF 'BOSCASTLE' IN THE STORY OF THE GREAT CENTRAL RAILWAY.

There is no charge for the tour, but donations towards the overhaul of Rebuilt 'West Country' Class 4-6-2 no. 34039 Boscastle will be much appreciated - especially in view of the major work needed on the firebox.
