New Years Day Steam Up And Vintage Vehicle Gathering

We are very pleased to announce that the Lavender Line will be hosting its annual New years day steam up and vintage vehicle gathering which will be taking place on Friday 1st January 2016.

This ever popular and long running display is the railway’s largest non organised event which has been taking place on New years day over the past 12 years. All classic/vintage vehicle owners are invited to the gathering with no agenda or timetable for the day, meaning you may come and go as you please due to the nature of the relaxed event.

Our very own resident steam engine 0-6-0ST Bagnall “Empress” will be in steam providing train rides from platform 2 to Worth halt. The crisp cold atmosphere really makes a great scene, with extra steam and warming fires around the station it’s the perfect place to blow away those New years day Blues.

There will also be Diesel and brake van rides from platform 1 which will run in parallel to the main services with departures between 11.00 and 15.30.

In the past, we have seen a fantastic selection of vintage vehicles arriving on the day including a steam bus, classic cars and vintage lorries. Although we cannot guarantee what vehicles will be on display at the railway, we can guarantee a great day out for all the family.

Highlights of the New years day steam up-

Steam train rides from 11.00 till 4.00pm

Diesel and brake van rides from platform 1
