The Andrew Wilson Memorial Gala

In memory of one of our colleagues, our first Gala of the year features an eclectic mix of 7 or 8 ex British Railway Diesel shunting locos, selected from our large collection based at Rowsley South, operating each day.

Brake van rides will be available as will guided tours of our facilities, along with a free complimentary handout explaining how our collection evolved included in the price of your ticket.

If all goes to plan, we will be reintroducing our Class 14 into our roster of running locos for its return after an eight-year overhaul. One of the true “White Elephants”, of the early Beeching plan in action, that were “surplus to requirements” when being introduced.

A great day out for all the family, and of course the occasional railway fan. Trade stalls will be in attendance.

In a tribute to Andy, 7 or 8 shunters should be working from the following list; D2953, D2854, D2139, 03113, D2205, D2284, D2587, 07001, 08016, PWM654, Bigga and D9525.

The Heritage Shunters Trust reserves the right to add/alter/cancel any of the details of this event without prior notice.

Peak Rail trains will also be in operation from 11.00am and normal fares and timetable will apply to these dates.
