LLANGOLLEN STEAM RAILWAY

8th April 2016 - 10th April 2016

Along Cambrian Lines Gala 

The Llangollen Railway's Spring Steam Gala will take place over three days from Friday 8th April to Sunday 10th April.

Headlining the event are two very special guests: 4-6-0 No. 7820 "Dinmore Manor" and Small Prairie class 2-6-2T No. 4566. The gala should also feature the return of our resident 4-6-0 No.7822 "Foxcote Manor" following a major overhaul, supplementing locos from the LR's home fleet: 5199, 6430 & 80072. Expect to see double headers, express workings and an intensive timetable recalling the sights and sounds of the Cambrian routes in the 1950s and 60s.
 
A gala programme including timetables will be available free from stations when purchasing tickets - while stocks last. Download the programme for free from our website today!
