LOCOMOTIVES designed by Stroudley, Maunsell and Bulleid will operate at the Nene Valley Railway this spring as the Peterborough line goes Southern for its March 9-10 steam gala.
The Battle of Britain Locomotive Society’s resident Bulleid Pacific No. 34081 92 Squadron will be joined by Maunsell ‘Schools’ 4-4-0 No. 926 Repton from the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, part of a reciprocal agreement that took the ‘Battle of Britain’ to Yorkshire for the North Yorkshire Moors Railway’s 2018 autumn gala.
