The star guest for the Winter Steam Gala has now arrived at the CVR having been transported via road from its home base at the Mid Hants Railway.
Southern Railways U Class Locomotive No. 31806 will be visiting the CVR for three weeks during which it will take part in the Winter Steam Gala along with three days of Photo Charters and two days of Cauldon Lowe footplate experience courses.
A first for one of our Steam Gala events is the new online booking system which is now live. Visitors wishing to purchase their tickets online before the event to avoid having to queue can now do so. We are also pleased to be offering lineside photo passes, these can be purchased in advance via the website and will also be available to purchase during the gala.
Online ticket sales are going well for what looks to be a popular event.
The timetable is now available to download from here
