SOME 30 steam, diesel and electric exhibits are being lined up for a charity open day on June 8 at the former Crewe diesel depot, now the operational base of Locomotive Services Limited.
The event is being organised by Virgin Trains staff based at Crewe station with the aim of raising money and awareness for the NET Patient Foundation which helps sufferers of neuroendocrine tumours.
The Rethink charity, which provides help and support for people affected by mental illness will also be supported. The Railway Magazine is partnering the event.
Under the banner of ‘All Change’ – representing changes at the depot as well as to the railway network – the event will open at 09.30 until 16.00.
Admittance will be by advance ticket only, with a limit of 5,000 tickets.
