Diesel Gala 2018

Date: 14th to 16th Sep -

Join us for an action-packed three day Diesel Gala.  Our guest star will be D832, Onslaught, visiting courtesy of the Bury Hydrualic Group.  This will be an historic visit - the first time that a Warship has run into the Forest - the last recorded visit was in the 1960's when one got as far as Lydney Junction yard!

D832 will run alongside residents D9521 (Class 14) and D3937 Gladys (Class 08), on intensive timetables full of diesel action.  The gala also includes "Driver for a Fiver" footplate experiences, setting off from Norchard Low-Level platform using one of our industrial Hunslet 0-4-0 shunters, Salty or Don Corbett.  Also featuring will be our famous rideable freight trains - a long rake of loaded Dogfish ballast hoppers!  Ride in the brake van for an unforgettable experience.

We will also have a range of local ales and ciders in the Waiting Room Bar at Norchard, and available on the train.
