4270 to appear at Steam Gala28th May 2019
GWR 2-8-0T 4270 will be appearing at our Steam Gala on 7, 8 and 9 June. We are grateful to Icons of Steam and the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway for allowing the brief visit of the locomotive built in 1919 and designed to haul heavy coal trains in South Wales. We’re sure it will feel suitably at home on our steep gradients!
We are delighted to welcome the locomotive as a replacement for Caledonian Railway 419 which has unfortunately failed and been withdrawn from the event by the owners. We are sorry for any disappointment this will cause.
