Autumn Diesel Gala25, 26 September

Join us for 37029's 60th Birthday bash!

31438 at North Weald

The diesel fleet comes to the fore for a weekend of action over some of the steepest gradients in preservation.

Expected to be the last appearance of D6729 (37029) in its current guise, before it has a well earned makeover as a 60th birthday present!

Expect our usual intensive 3 train service to be in operation, and we hope to be able to offer brake van rides. 

The home fleet of D.2170, 31438, 37029 and 47635 are all expected to feature, alongside D8001 (20001) in a new livery, our diesel multiple unit and possible visiting locomotives. 

D6729 (37029) entered traffic on 3 October 1961, so the locomotive is celebrating its 60th birthday a few days early!

Further details to be announced.
