Goods Galore Gala – 28th and 29th March 2020

Our goods-themed showcase of how Britain's railways moved goods around the country, becoming a lifeline to towns and villages ahead of the age of mass road transportation.

Goods Galore takes place earlier in 2020 on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th March.

Expect to see up to 6 goods trains (5 goods train sets and 1 parcels train which also carries passengers) in service alongside a very frequent passenger service, shunting demonstrations, and turntable demonstrations.

More details will be published here soon.
