The Ecclesbourne Valley Railway have announced that LMS Ivatt Class 2 No. 46521 will be visiting them in 2020.

The Class 2 will be visiting from mid-June until mid-September, which is around the time where the LMS Carriage Association plan to introduce their restored Brake Third Open coach into traffic.

46521’s visit to the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway is thanks to the Loughborough Standard Locomotive Group, Great Central Railway and the Charles Newton Trust.

This is an excellent opportunity to see an LMS locomotive running on an LMS branch line. What’re your thoughts? Let us know in the comments below.

This locomotive was allocated to Oswestry, Brecon and Machynlleth shed during its working life. The locomotive was a regular sight in Barmouth during the 1950s and 1960s. It worked trains along the Cambrian Coast and the regular shuttles to Dolgellau via the Mawddach Estuary.
