Goods Train Weekend
Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th April 2006
Pick up the Goods
Passenger services hauled by Blackmoor Vale and 75027.
The pre-grouping goods train ran, hauled by LBSCR Terrier No.672 "Fenchurch" of 1872. Normandy shunted at Horsted Keynes. Passenger services hauled by the O1 and Blackmoor Vale, and the Golden Arrow lunchtime train by 75027.
Blackmoor Vale's train included the LMS Bananna Van.
Some re-organisation was necessary as the U-class has had a recurrence of brake problems on the tender. The Esso bitumen tanker has birds nesting in it, so couldn't be used!
