The weekend planned for 9th/10th July will be just a little bit different from our past Weekend Events. There will not be a steam locomotive in service, nor will there be any freight trains.
Instead, at 30 minute intervals (commencing at 11:00 am), there will be a celebration of Simplex diesel engined locomotives produced by the Motor Rail and Tramcar Company and Simplex Mechanical Handling. Five loco's are in full working order and providing passenger services over the weekend. As it is intended to work these locomotives both singularly and in various combinations, a Day Rover ticket will be available (priced £5) so that passengers wishing to sample all modes may do so.
Three other Motor Rail Simplex locomotives (non-runners) in the GVLR collection will be displayed as static exhibits in the vicinity of the Running Shed. All locomotives are subject to availability on the day.
The GVLR has started an appeal
to fund the construction
of a New Carriage Shed
