We're getting steamed up at the start of the season! Tickets for our Spring Steam Gala , from March 16-18, will be available to book very shortly.
Come and see a tantalising feast of locos great and small as they take to our tracks for this festival of steam!

We've got attractions all along the line so there's lots to see and do!

Our steam train visitors this year include one of the oldest locomotives still in steam as well as one of the newest! Bellarophon was built way back in 1874 and is still going strong today, while No. 60163 Tornado is the first mainline steam loco to be built since the 60s and steamed for the first time in 2008.

Update on the K1 Garratt whistle design, plan A of using the Vac cylinder as the resonator wasn’t really going to work for various reasons not least on the manual version the shaft to reverser the valve gear on the front power unit would be in the way.
Plan B is two separate resonators mounted underneath either side of the boiler cradle and towards the front power unit. I made up two resonators yesterday based on a design that works for the Acccuraft NG15, these mount onto the front boiler cradle cross member and slide onto the member via a slot cut into the mounting block. Was worried the resonator my hit the top of the front power unit cylinder cover when the power unit swings around a tight curve, but there appears to be about 3mm gap.
Now need to make up two straight whistles to fit into the resonator and see if it will all fit in as the dummy vac cylinder is sat very near to one of the whistles? I’ll then use a tee piece to connect up the two separate whistles to the steam supply from the whistle valve. If it works okay it should be a simple installation no holes to drill, just mount the resonators/whistles in place and connect up the steam supply. The cross member holding the dummy Vac cylinder would need to be removed to allow access, but this is only held in place by four small screws.
A few photos of the basic resonators in place to see if there was room etc. These need to be finished off and whistles made to push onto the end and see what problems I hit then?
Never as simple as you first think even on something as big as a Garratt
Will post more updates hopefully in the next few days as and when I get time to work on it.
Single tone version would just be one resonator/whistle fitted in the same way

It takes a steady hand

When you’re applying 22 karat gold leaf, you’ve got to have a good eye and a steady hand, as volunteer John Beck explains in this video clip. John is one of the team working to restore 2701, one of the SVR’s carriages that was badly vandalised at the Railway during the Christmas period.

A fantastic response from the public has meant that in just one week, we raised the £10,000 needed to pay for putting things right after the vandals did their worst. We are hugely grateful to everyone who donated, and you can still help further carriage restoration at the SVR by visiting svrtrust.org.uk/individual-support/donate-online-2.html
