Super Power Weekend Take 2 - For those of you who attended Super Power Saturday you will be aware we suffered from a huge amount of rain which culminated in the Canal breaching and washing the railway line away South of Consall. Unfortunately the event was cancelled.
The railway is repaired, and this is now Super Power Weekend Take 2. We are planning to run the event over 2 days to make up for the original date and make the most of having three resident S160's. The only way we can improve this is when we are in a position to run 4 or 5 of these locomotives together .... watch this space
Join us for this groundbreaking event, all in aid of returning trains to Leek for the first time since 1970!
Resident American Sisters nos. 5197 and 6046 will be joined by no. 2253 Omaha, making a flying visit courtesy of Peter Best and Dartmouth Steam Railway.
There will be four non-stop return journeys, commencing from Froghall and departing for Ipstones and back offering 20-miles of S160 haulage. Each return journey will be operated by a different pairing of S160s, and tickets will permit all day travel on all four services.
Starting in the quiet and sedate Churnet Valley line, each journey will explore Staffordshire’s hidden valley that interweaves with river and canal, before venturing deep into the Staffordshire Moorlands with spectacular views as far as the eye can see whilst the locomotives challenge one of the steepest gradients found on a railway in the UK.
Fancy a bite to eat during your day out? Then enjoy the traditional atmosphere in our Signals Tea Room at Froghall Station, offering freshly brewed coffee, cooked breakfasts, hot and cold lunches, cream teas and a delicious selection of cakes. Signals Tea Room is wheelchair accessible and child-friendly.
Our Moolander Kitchen car will be included on the train, serving both hot & cold light refreshments to all travellers onboard.
