  1. I think you are mistaken that we are in 2019 and not in 2018. With both the Class 142 and Class 91 to have a open day event in Crewe. Which is why these British built trains will soon be replaced by new trains in the upcoming years ahead.

    • Not forgetting the Class 143, Class 144 and Class 43 HSTs. Which they too are also to be replaced with new trains in the next few years. Except Class 43s will still be around for another 15-20 years. Including those that have been cascaded to Scotland.

  2. It’s all very well telling what’s going to be there but I can find no information regarding buying tickets. As the numbers are going to be restricted to 5000, it is probably already too late

  3. The people selling the tickets have made a huge cock-up. They have ‘lost’ a lot of people’s details and are now claiming that they never contacted them. Tickets are now sold out so these people (including me and my friend) have been left without tickets.

  4. Old oak common was tickets but you could pay on the gate and I’m sure that attracted more than 5000 visitors .Drs you can pay on the gate and that’s a smaller venue .Been looking forward to this event and taking my nephew who is 6 so can anyone tell me if you will be able to pay on the gate .

  5. Hi, my dad bought tickets for this event in February but they still have not arrived. I can’t find details of who to contact to help with this. Does anybody have any ideas when tickets will arrive?… or have number I could call?
    Many thanks
