Royal Train Anniversary

Royal Train Anniversary Special

2014 marks 60 years since the last Royal Train ran over the section of line that now makes up Silver Stream Railway.

To mark the occasion we decided to run a special day that featured the 2 De class Diesel Electric locomotives in our fleet at the head of the train. While not the locomotives used on the original both 508 and 505 made the right noises allowing the people who visited to ride the train the chance to imagine what it would have been like in 1954.
