We have exciting plans for this event which will be gradually released here as it nears so be sure to check back regularly!

A one-off Class 14 Spectacular!

Following on from the iconic event held in 2014 at the East Lancashire Railway to celebrate 50 years since the class were introduced, the EVR is planning to celebrate the class reaching their diamond jubilee. It is planned for the weekend to feature several members of the class operating together to especially include locomotives which were not operational at the time of the 2014 event. It is also planned to be a ‘swan-song’ for D9537 which is due to be withdrawn at the end of the event for overhaul works to commence.
