Both D6948 and 37215 will be out working the GWR’s Green Timetable diesel hauled diagram on Saturday 28th October comprising the 1110, 1330, and 1555 Toddington-Cheltenham Racecourse, and the 1205, 1425 and 1640 return from Cheltenham.
The locos will operate in top and tail formation throughout the day in order to keep things nice and warm using the steam heat boiler in D6948.
So if you fancy a steamy day out in the Cotswolds and a sight like this, please come along and support the Group by riding on the trains!
The rosters page has now been updated with the booked workings on the GWR for 37215 and D6948, so you can make plans for the summer!
The East Midlands Railway Photographic Society (EMRPS) did a night-shoot photo charter at Toddington station with D6948 and the maroon set of coaches on Saturday 11th March. The loco was posed in a variety of locations around the station during the evening resulting in some lovely atmospheric photographs.
D6948 will be operating the GWR’s green timetable diesel diagram on the 1st and 2nd April 2017. This will be its first use since restoration as D6948 on the GWR’s normal timetabled trains. Full details on the Roster Page
