The Shunter Hunter Enthusiast Gala

2020 event has been cancelled.

Don’t worry hopefully there’ll be another one along on the 23rd and 24th August – see here

A varied assortment of Shunters from our Spectacular Collection will be working for your delight over the two days.

Barring any unforeseen difficulties, at least eight shunters will be working each day of the Gala.

These will be selected from the following;
D2953, D2854, D2139, 03113, 03099, D2205, D2284, D2587, D2420, 07001, PWM654, D9525 and “Bigga” our industrial loco, with 08016 acting as the Thunderbird Loco.

Nearer the weekend we will be announcing a definitive list of locos working.

Please note as far as possible all the locos chosen to work will work both days, in pairs or singly, topping and tailing on our brakevans.

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