Visit the Spa Valley Railway in Tunbridge Wells in the New Year to experience a wonderful steam train journey through beautiful countryside on 31 December 2022 and again on 1 and 2nd January 2023. This will be an opportunity to take a trip behind impressive visiting locomotive Bulleid Pacific 34072 ‘257 Squadron’.
257 Squadron was built at Brighton Works in 1948 and mainly worked the continental boat trains from London to Dover as well as working on local services between the Kent Coast and Charing Cross until the electrification of the Kent coast lines in 1958.
A special Winter Steam Up event will also take place on 7 and 8 January 2023 which will be the last opportunity to travel behind visiting Bulleid Pacific 34072 ‘257 Squadron’. 34072 will be joined by Hunslet Austerity 2890 ‘Douglas’ and one of the railway’s own heritage diesel locomotives.
