The Nene Valley Railway have announced that B1 No.61306 Mayflower will not be attending their Steam in Green event on the 1st and 2nd September 2018.
This is disappointing for the line, which was expecting 61306 to join 60009 Union of South Africa and 34081 92 Squadron at the event.
The cancellation is due to the current steam ban on Network Rail, it means that running in trials of steam locomotives are suspended.
However, this still does mean that 60009 Union of South Africa and 34081 92 Squadron will still be in steam on the 1st and 2nd September 2018 and the Nene Valley Railway look forward to welcoming Mayflower in the future.
If you booked tickets for The Mayflower Jolly Fisherman service on the 8th September. The Nene Valley Railway will be in contact with you shortly to discuss options.
