The star guest for the Winter Steam Gala No. 34007 Wadebridge has successfully completed its footplate experience schedule completing 3 days of running between Froghall and Ipstones Loop. Following a few teething issues on the test runs 34007 has stormed up the bank unassisted with steam and power to spare!
The run round loop at Ipstones was commissioned on time which sees the return of steam unassisted up the 1 – in 45 gradient.
