Class 50 50026 'Indomitable' Running Weekend

Saturday 24th & Sunday 25th June

Spa Valley Railway » Events

Join us and visiting Network SouthEast liveried Class 50 'Indomitable' for a weekend of Class 50 action up and down the Spa Valley.

On our other train will be Class 33 33063 taking us back to the days of 'Cromptons' and 50's hauling trains on 'Route 62' down to the 'West Country'.

A special timetable will be in use on both Saturday 24th & Sunday 25th instead of our standard green one. This will allow 50026 to operate 6 return trips from Tunbridge Wells West to Eridge throughout the day, a total of 60 miles travel behind the Class 50 being on offer.

For operational reasons 31289 will be used to haul the train the final few yards into the stations at Tunbridge Wwells West and pushing in at Eridge, 50026 being detached just prior to arrival and then attached again for departure. 31289 will be dead in tow between Eridge & Tunbridge Wells West so that you can hear 50026 at work, the addition of 31289 adding 107 tons to the train!

Timetable for weekend, updated Wednesday 20th June available to download here.

Class 50 hauled trains will depart Tunbridge Wells West at: 09:45, 11:15, 12:45, 14:15, 15:45 & 17:15 and Eridge at: 10:30, 12:00, 13:30, 15:00, 16:30 & 18:00.

These trains will only call at Groombridge and not at High Rocks. For those travelling to Eridge on the national rail network there is plenty of time to connect onto the 10:30 departure.
