Our carriages in use for Worth Valley Vintage Trains July and August 2023
Updated 29th September 2023
The Vintage Trains services for 2023 started on 22nd July with 3 of our carriages in use as in the above photo, which is copyright Tom Marshall. Previously it had been believed that both of our 6-wheelers would have to be left out with a Vintage Carriages Trust (VCT) carriage replacing our 6-wheeler Third 1507 but a further review has found that it has been possible to include First 6-wheeler 279.

Our 6-wheeler Third 1507 will now not be is use, and for various operational reasons it will be actually be on display in the VCT museum at Ingrow whilst the Vintage Trains are operating.
There is a major change for 2023 as the trains will operate on both Saturdays and Sundays for all 5 weekends.
The dates are 22nd & 23rd July, 29th & 30th July, 5th & 6th August, 12th & 13th August, 19th & 20th August.
It is expected that the Worth Valley will operate Vintage Trains services in future years, and one or more of our carriages may be used in the Steam Gala to take place between 21st and 24th March 2024, current information can be seen on their website here (opens in new window).
