Shunters' Day


Visitors were invited to help solve shunting puzzles with real live locomotives and stock on the shunters' day held on 19th July. Several of our industrial locomotives and a good selection of the industrial rolling stock were in action. Andrew Bratton was on hand to capture the action.
