 Whilst we make every effort to operate with a steam locomotive where one is timetabled and also to operate our trains as they are described, for operational reasons we may occasionally need to use a heritage 1960s diesel locomotives, other carriages, an emergency timetable or otherwise.

The Spa Valley Railway reserves the right to make such changes for whatever reason without prior notice being given.
