Steam Gala comes powering into Llan


*Headliner: Dinmore Manor. 
Llangollen Railway's Spring Steam Gala will take place over three days from Friday 8th April to Sunday 10th April.

Headlining the event are two very special guests: 4-6-0 No. 7820 "Dinmore Manor" and Small Prairie class 2-6-2T No. 4566.

The gala should also feature the return of the railway's resident 4-6-0 No.7822 "Foxcote Manor" following a major overhaul, supplementing locos from the LR's home fleet: 5199, 6430 & 80072. Expect to see double headers, express workings and an intensive timetable recalling the sights and sounds of the Cambrian routes in the 1950s and 60s. A gala programme including timetables will be available free from stations when purchasing tickets - while stocks last.
