AVLR: Military Trains Weekend

July 9 2022 @ 11:30 am - July 10 2022 @ 4:00 pm

The AVLR boasts the UK’s premier collection of railway equipment from the First World War, and this weekend is the opportunity to see it at work. WW1-era locos will haul passenger trains. Freight trains will see both ww1-era and military trains from later years demonstrated. Visitors can also tour the replica Trench, and learn a little more about the experiences of soldiers during the Great War. Re-enactor groups are particularly welcome during this weekend – please get in touch if interested. Passenger trains will run from 1130 to 4pm on both days, with standard fares charged.

Please note that this event is run by the Railway.  For info see www.avlr.org.uk or e-mail info@avlr.org.uk
