AVLR: Railway Gala 2015
May 16, 2015 - May 17, 2015
Theme of the 2015 Apedale Valley Light Railway Gala will be Locos from Leeds. In a departure from previous practice, the event will be held in May 2015.
The Locos from Leeds theme has been chosen to showcase the Trust’s newly restored Hudswell Clarke steam locomotive, and also the other Leeds-built items in the collection. Leeds was famous for being home to several locomotive builders, including Hunslet, Hudswell and John Fowler – and various Leeds-built locos are held in the Trust collection. As is traditional now at Apedale Galas, there will be a full complement of model railways and trade stands for the entertainment of visitors. The replica World War One Trench system – built for the Tracks to the Trenches event – will be open for visitors, with military re-enactor groups working to bring to life the experiences of soldiers in that conflict.
