It's not all about steam!

This year's Diesel Day sees all three home fleet diesel locomotives out and about.  An intensive timetable will be in operation throughout the day.

Consett Iron Company locomotive No.10, unable to haul passenger trains, will be completing demonstration runs in the yard. Our two ex-British Railways shunting locomotives, No. 08915 and D2078, will be hauling the passenger service, as well as taking a demonstration freight train each throughout the day.

Full timetable available here soon.
