The WSR Gala Planning Team is happy to announce our next visiting locomotive for our Spring Steam Spectacular event, between Friday 28th April and Bank Holiday Monday 1st May.
We are pleased to confirm that 2999 'Lady of Legend' will be joining our line-up for the event, joining previously confirmed visitor 7812 'Erlestoke Manor'!
Having been completed in early 2019, 'Lady of Legend' became the 78th member of the GWR Saint Class, having been back converted from 4942 'Maindy Hall'.
This will be the first ever visit of a GWR Saint to the Minehead branch, and a rare opportunity to see this locomotive in a traditional GWR branch line setting.
We are really excited to see this loco in action on our line, and we hope that you are excited too. Tickets are available to pre-book at a discounted rate now. Further information on visiting engines and other attractions will be revealed soon!
2999 appears courtesy of the Great Western Society and Didcot Railway Centre, our thanks go out to them for the hire of their engine.
