Giants of steam come together for two-day event at Nene Valley.


Nene Valley Railway’s Steam Gala will return this weekend on September 10 and 11.

“It is shaping up to be a really good one,” said organiser Jerry Thurston. “This year’s special guests will be LMS Ivatt Class 2 No 46521 and Maunsell Q class Number 30541, which will be in action both separately and together over the weekend.”

As well as the two guest locomotives there will also be the opportunity to see the current ‘home fleet’ in steam and view the restoration work on the Battle of Britain class Locomotive ‘92 Squadron’ which is due to be in steam by the end of this year.

Entry costs £22.50 for adults, £18 for seniors, £10.50 for children or £55 for a family ticket (two adults and three children).
