The Lavender Line
We have some very exciting news to share on behalf of the Spa Valley Railway, but as the update states this cannot happen unless the financial situation allows it so please dig deep and help make this dream become a reality.
The following update has been written by Jonnie Wesson of the Spa Valley Railway.
Following a lot of hard work the Spa Valley Railway would like to announce, that subject to the funding through our 'Double Thumpers Appeal', Lavender Line based Class 205 DEMU 1133 will be visiting us in 2015 to support our 30th Anniversary of Line Closure event 4th & 5th July and also our Summer Diesel Gala 31st July - 2nd August.
So if you want to see 1133 at the Spa then we need your help to fund the transport, the visit won't happen unless funding is in place so please donate now to our 'Double Thumpers Appeal' here: http://www.spavalleyrailway.co.uk/.../Double_Thumpers.../
Without your support the visit cannot take place, we need another £4,100 to reach the required total to move 1133 from the Lavender Line to Spa and return.
Anyone who donates £100 or above will be entitled to a complimentary ticket for the 30th Anniversary event plus... If you donate £1000 you'll be able to receive a half days driver experience on 1317 during 2015 and for £500 you will be offered a cab ride on 1317 and now (subject to funding) 1133 during the 30th Anniversary Event as well as the complimentary ticket!
Want to see it happen?! It needs your support!!!!!!
