56006 ELR Summer Gala 2024

Unfortunately , despite determined efforts, it is not going to be possible to have 56006 available for the upcoming Gala. The recent small fire has put an additional workload on the team -which is additional to the existing list of repairs and work needed to bring 56006 back into traffic.

The good news is that our team of volunteers has grown over the last two months and we now feel we have the makings of a strong team which should allow steady progress on 56006 and we are hoping to complete repairs and carry out some thorough testing in advance of the Autumn Gala.
