What’s Happening At The Lavender Line Throughout March

We have a packed out March set for the Lavender Line including the start of our steam season, DEMU day’s, goods train specials and two train services! Kicking off the month will be our first steam service of the 2016 season where resident steam engine 0-6-0ST Bangnall ‘Empress’ will be sharing a half hourly timetable with our resident DEMU Thumper 1133. Unfortunately due to on going restoration of the Class 09 09025 the decision has been made to book Thumper 1133 in her place making it a steam and Thumper day!

Throughout the month we will be operating every Sunday with standard Diesel services on Sunday 13th and Sunday 20th. The new format of steam every 2 weeks comes into action as of April.

Our Easter weekend will be the highlight of March. With 3 loco’s booked for Easter Sunday and Easter Monday, its set to be a fantastic weekend with something for everyone! For more information on our Easter weekend please visit our website at www.lavender-line.co.uk
