Thomas has been chatting with his pals Mr. NVR Steam Driver & Mr. NVR Fireman & they have decided that it is time to get back out on tracks for some fun & fresh air. Tickets are now on sale for Sat 17th & Sun 18th July. Thomas really hopes all his pals will be able to join him when he hauls the train from Wansford to Yarwell & back. Once back at Wansford Thomas will hand over the STEAM to one of his larger Loco pals who will take you all on a return trip to Peterborough through the Nene Valley.
For advance notice of tickets going on sale for our New Summer Holiday Family Fun Days please send us an email email@example.com
Our Summer Holiday Family Fun Days will be running every Wednesday throughout the Summer Holidays. We have lots of fun planned. Click to view Event Details If Thomas is not out on the tracks for the Family Fun Wednesday he will be visiable in the yard to see.
The 0-6-0T engine No. 1800 was built by Hudswell Clarke in 1947 at about the time when Rev.W Awdry wrote his second book in which Thomas appeared. The little blue engine spent its entire working life at the British Sugar Corporation Peterborough factory pushing wagons of sugar beet up an incline until the day came when a diesel engine replaced the steam power of Thomas. The Peterborough Railway Society purchased this delightful little engine on 9th September 1973 and he was moved to the Nene Valley Railway, where he has since delighted his friends and children of all ages.
