53809 and 76017 Published: 26th April 2017

53809 is reaching the end of some challenging boiler repairs but unfortunately we are not quite there yet.

Standard Class 4 2-6-0 number 76017 will therefore run in place of 53809’s advertised turns throughout the gala but as soon as 53809 is deemed fit for traffic we will be putting her out on double-heading turns wherever possible. The current target is to have 53809 back into traffic by mid-Friday afternoon (1500 ex-MD with 53808). Please keep an eye on our website, and Facebook page for further details.
