Recreating long lost West Country Class 34095 'Brentor'.
Visit the Spa Valley Railway over the weekend of 26th & 27th June 2021 to see a long lost Bulleid Pacific 34095 ‘Brentor’ being recreated as we change ‘Sir Keith Park’ to ‘Brentor’ for one weekend only!
‘Brentor’ was a West Country Bulleid Light Pacific built at Eastleigh works in October 1947 to the same design as Battle of Britain ‘Sir Keith Park’. This gives us the opportunity, thanks to Phill Brentor, the owner of cast nameplates, West Country scrolls and numperplates to change the identity of 34053 to that of 34095 on 26th & 27th June.
34095 worked right up until the end of steam on the Southern, being withdrawn after returning to Weymouth shed on 9th July 1967, the day the curtain came down on steam services in the South!
Tickets are available for unlimited travel behind 'Brentor' between Tunbridge Wells West & Eridge.
Trains will depart from Tunbridge Wells West at 10:30, 11:55, 13:25, 14:45 and 16:15, they will be hauled by a heritage diesel between Tunbridge Wells West and Eridge and hauled back to Tunbridge Wells West by 'Brentor'.
We also have a Fish & Chip Supper and Real Ale Train on Saturday 26th, hauled by 'Brentor'. If you'd just like to travel on this service without dining then holders of our daytime travel tickets can travel on these evening dining trains at no extra cost.
The 19:00 and 20:15 services from Tunbridge Wells West operate on Saturday 26th June only and NOT Sunday 27th June.
COVID-19Following changes to the easing of restricitons, social distancing will continue on board but customers can travel all day and board or alight at any of our stations! High Rocks, Groombridge and Eridge are all open for full boarding and alighting to explore the surrounding areas too.
Regular cleaning of our train door handles and other surfaces is taking place throughout the day and passengers are required to wear a facemask unless medically excempt whilst sat in an Open Carriage on inside our buildings, masks can be removed if seated in compartment coaches and the door is closed.
How does it work?Passengers do not have to pre-book unless they would like a guaranteed seat for a complete return trip without a break of journey.
On this website you can book one return trip and be allocated seats for one return trip, if you choose to alight at one of our stations we cannot guarantee you the same allocated seats for your return journey and you may need to sit elsewhere on the train. Your ticket is valid all day but your seat allocations only for one complete return trip without a break in your journey.
Enthusiasts or visitors can travel all day if they wish but your allocated seating will only be for the one return trip you book - i.e. 10:30 out and back, the following trip you may be required to sit in another carriage where we've spare capacity.
