Visiting Loco Weekend

Returning in 2025…

Our Visiting Loco Weekend saw a varied selection of visiting locomotives in steam alongside some of the Moors Valley Railway fleet.

Dates for the 2025 event will be announced later in the year.

Visiting locos for 2024 were:

  • Mrs. Darling – a Tinkerbell-based loco usually found at Swanley New Barn Railway
  • Yeo – a 3rd scale model of a Manning Wardle Lynton and Barnstable locomotive, based at the Colne Valley Railway
  • Tarn Beck – a River class loco from the Littledale Light Railway (operating Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday)
  • Afon Glaslyn – another River class loco, built by the late Gerry Clarke
