Maybach Memories

The Diesel Electric Preservation Group are operating an additional eleven heritage diesel hydraulic locomotive hauled trains, during the 2017 season. Therefore today we will be running an additional Diesel service.

These trains will run under the brand name of “MAYBACH MEMORIES” in recognition that the last British Railways Western Region Maybach powered diesel hydraulic locomotives ran in 1977.

The Diesel Locomotive on the 6th and 7th May* will be D1010 Western Campaigner and is highlighted below in the timetable as DIESEL. On the other dates of Maybach memories we will add the locomotive as soon as we know which one it will be. 

*on Sunday 7th May, D1010 may be replaced by another diesel locomotive.
