This event is free for all to attend so will be well worth travelling for. The personal highlight for us will be the display of the 2 Ex-Pat A4's outside - Dwight D. and Dominion of Canada. Both locos have come home for Mallard's 75th Record anniversary celebreations next year and this event will mark one of the first chances to see them back home, don't forget the A4's did come through Shildon on ECML diversions and would be seen just yards from the venue.


We hope to see some of you there.
