Diesel Operating Update 12/08/2022

12/08/2022 (1 year ago)   General News

We are keeping in regular dialogue with the fire service, and given the exceptionally dry conditions, we are unable able to mitigate the risk sufficiently at this time.

For this reason this weekend and until further notice we shall be operating Diesel locomotives. 

We will keep this under daily review and will reintroduce steam locomotive operated services as soon as possible.

Having already cut back some steam services due to the ongoing coal situation in the UK, we are disappointed that we are currently unable to operate any steam service.
