End of BR Steam Gala – 4th/5th & 11th/12th August 2018

We're commemorating the end of steam on British Railways with two special weekends on 4th and 5th August and 11th & 12th August.

We're hopeful that 70013 Oliver Cromwell will be in service at the event, just as it did in the final days of BR Steam in 1968.

More details to follow soon!
