LOCOMOTIVES designed by Stroudley, Maunsell and Bulleid will operate at the Nene Valley Railway this spring as the Peterborough line goes Southern for its March 9-10 steam gala.

Set for a visit to the Nene Valley Railway: Southern ‘Schools’ 4-4-0 No. 926 Repton works the afternoon freight from Grosmont to Goathland at Beckhole during the North Yorkshire Moors Railway’s autumn gala on September 28 last year. The loco was temporarily running without its smoke deflectors. DAVE RODGERS

The Battle of Britain Locomotive Society’s resident Bulleid Pacific No. 34081 92 Squadron will be joined by Maunsell ‘Schools’ 4-4-0 No. 926 Repton from the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, part of a reciprocal agreement that took the ‘Battle of Britain’ to Yorkshire for the North Yorkshire Moors Railway’s 2018 autumn gala.

Both locos will work a number of trains double-headed, which will be made up of Mk1 stock for the weekend, along with some demonstration freight workings.
