Visit of Lancashire & Yorkshire A-Class Locomotive No. 52322!

The Spa Valley Railway is delighted to announce the visit of Andy Booths historic A-Class locomotive to our railway from May to August 2018.

Built in 1896 and outshopped from Horwich Works as Lancashire & Yorkshire No. 1300 the locomotive comes to us for our busy Summer period and will first haul trains on Saturday 5th May to our standard Green timetable between Tunbridge Wells West and Eridge.
