May Bank Holiday Weekends Parallel Running Specials

We will be hosting an additional event over the course of the May bank holiday weekends which are held at the beginning of May and the end of May.

Our parallel departures proved so popular we will be running diesel alongside steam from platform 1 with brake van rides as far the bridge, at the same time the steam service from platform 2 departs giving you that unique parallel departure as both train leave Isfield, a real treat for both rail enthusiast and families!

On Sunday 4th May Austin 1 will be in charge of the passenger service from platform 2 whilst our resident diesel ‘Valiant’ carries out brake van rides from platform 1. On Monday 5th May ‘Austin 1’ will be replaced by our newest engine ‘Yvonne’ with again Valiant on brake van duties from platform 1. This scenario will also be the same for the final bank holiday weekend at the end of May.

This is a great event for all ages and something you don’t experience at most railways, parallel departures give you that real close up feeling!
