Recreating Brentor!

26th & 27th June

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34095 worked right up until the end of steam on the Southern, being withdrawn after returning to Weymouth shed on 9th July 1967, the day the curtain came down on steam services in the South!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 between 10:00 and 18:00 both days with evening dining on Saturday 26th, hauled by 'Brentor.
