Saddletank 752 to visit Didcot Railway Centre in May 2024

Agreement has been reached for Saddletank 752 to visit the Didcot Railway Centre for their ‘Steam into the 40s’ event during the early May Bank Holiday on May 4th, 5th and 6th 2024.

Currently planned to stay at Didcot to operate there on the weekend of 11th and 12th May.

This is subject to 752 passing some additional testing. This arises because road access to the Didcot site is on the opposite side of the main national rail network line to Oxford so 752 will briefly have to negotiate the main line, albeit not as extensive as its travels in 1980.  

Details of the event can be seen on the Didcot Railway Centre website here (opens in new window)
