5197 Ready For Action
Following completion of remedial repairs after her public relaunch into service at our hugely popular Winter Steam Gala, former USATC S160 no. 5197 is now ready for full service and is expected to haul all of the Churnet Valley's services over the Easter period.
Her first trains will be during the Easter Family Fun day on April 12th, where Kids For A Quid is on offer to all accompanied children wishing to ride on one of our services. She will then also operate all four days of the Easter Bank Holiday weekend, after which she will once again return to action for our second Easter Family Fun day on April 19th before finally completing the holiday services over the weekend of April 22/23 where she will also be hauling our St George's Day Cream Tea.
The full list of opening dates and times can be viewed on our online calendar >here<, which for the first time is allowing you the oportunity to book one of dining services online too.
