Fancy getting some miles in behind resident Class 33/0 33063 'R. J. Mitchell'?
Well on Saturday 20th June 2020 you can do just that from 10:30 until 18:30 with a variety of return trips available behind the 1962 built BRCW machine. 33063 arrived at the Spa Valley Railway in 2002 and is fitted with a Sulzer 8LDA power unit generating 1550Hp the loco has proven very popular amongst visitors and crews alike so we are delighted to offer you the chance to spend a day behind the engine.
Normally our trains only operate 30 miles per day so this opportunity will give you the chance to travel many more miles between Tunbridge Wells West and Eridge that day.
At Eridge, a resident diesel will be on hand to haul all trains from Eridge Ground Frame into the station, we have no run round facilities at this station however the this loco will not itself pull a train other than these short moves. At Eridge, if you wanted to skip a trip you could always visit the Huntsman Pub.
