Swanage/Severn Valley update

The Swanage Railway has advised that its Diesel Gala, which was due to take place on April 24th-26th, has had to be postponed owing to the ongoing Coronavirus situation. It also means that the Driver Experience courses with 55019, which were due to take place the previous weekend, will not be taking place.


In addition, the Severn Valley Railway gala on May 14th-17th has been postponed. The SVR hopes to reschedule the event later in the year if possible. Please await a further announcement regarding the Footplate Experience sessions.
