Spring Diesel Festival 2018
A stunning mix of heritage and mainline diesels working at the biggest diesel event in the country! Our Spring Diesel Festival brings three days of visiting heritage and modern diesel locomotives, home-fleet action, evening running and one or two surprises!
Following the hugely successful events in 2016 and 2017, our diesel bonanza brings great opportunities for visiting locomotives and, with the lighter evenings, is a hit with those who love the sounds of English Electric, Maybach and Sulzer diesel engines!
