The special charter train has been arranged in order to raise funds to be put towards the overhaul of Robert Stephenson Hawthorn 0-6-0T No.7151, which is based at the railway.

The locomotive is currently withdrawn from service and stored.

Hauling these special charter trains is Kerr Stuart Well-tank 0-4-0T “Willy”, which is a visitor to the line.

The day will start with the first train leaving at 10.30am. Standard fares apply for the train, but running to a special timetable for the event.
