The Ruislip Lido Railway has announced the final steaming days for their resident steam locomotive, Mad Bess.

Mad Bess will be running on Wednesday 1st January 2020 and Sunday 5th January 2020 – the final time before her 10-year overhaul.

After this date, the locomotive will have to undergo a major strip down and re-build so will not be steaming in 2020.

We saw Mad Bess at the Ruislip Lido Railway 40th Anniversary Gala, you can see that here.
