With the unfortunate situation of Class 50 – D444 not being available, the Enthusiasts Events committee have decided to replace the Class 50 with a visiting diesel.

We are pleased to announce Class 26 – D5310 will be on loan courtesy of the Llangollen Diesel Group.

The Class 26 will be running all 3 days on the below paths.

Friday & Saturday
09.20 & 13.20 Kidderminster Departures
11.35 & 15.45 Bridgnorth Departures

09.40 & 13.40 Kidderminster Departures
11.55 & 16.05 Bridgnorth Departures

The Severn Valley Railway would like to thank Llangollen Diesel Group for their assistance and also wish the Fifty Fund the best in getting D444 ready for mainline running.
