The Magnificent Severn & The Mayflower - Postponed

“The Magnificent Severn” - Saturday 25th March 2017


Due to the sad news that D1015 requires replacement of one of her engines, Western Champion will be out of action for the remainder of 2017.


I aim to reschedule for early 2018 and will announce the new date as soon as possible.


“The Mayflower” - Saturday 17th June 2017


Unfortunately, while undergoing major planned maintenance, additional faults were discovered on 61306, which has pushed back her reassembly.


I have just been advised by the owner, that reassembly will be carried-out by the end of May but this means there will not be sufficient time for testing before our tour to Felixstowe.


I am looking at dates towards the end of this summer or early autumn.

Please accept my apologies for the unavoidable disruption to our itinerary for this year.
