‘Foremarke’ joins ‘Saint’ at Didcot mini-gala

HAWKSWORTH ‘Modified Hall’ No. 7903 Foremarke Hall will make a rare visit away from its Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway home on June 7-9 in order to appear alongside ‘Saint’ No. 2999 Lady of Legend at Didcot Railway Centre’s Hall & Saint Gala. 

No. 7903 Foremarke Hall, seen ready to depart Toddington for Cheltenham Racecourse on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway, will be in steam at Didcot Railway Centre for two weekends in June. GARY BOYD-HOPE 

The two locomotives, which represent both ends of GWR 4-6-0 development, will be in steam together and operating passenger trains on the Didcot demonstration main line. 

It will be the first time in preservation a ‘Modified Hall’ and ‘Saint’ have steamed together in preservation.
