AROUND 30 main line steam, diesel and electric locomotives are being lined up for an open day to be staged at Locomotive Services’ modernised former Crewe diesel depot on Saturday, June 8.
The event is being organised by Virgin Trains staff based at Crewe station – supported by our sister publication The Railway Magazine – with the aim of raising money for charity.
The theme of the event is All Change, representing the evolution of the depot and the motive power changes introduced by BR and its successors.
