Q6 Special Train Cancelled


Regrettably, following a mechanical examination over the weekend of 1st and 2nd November, we have decided to withdraw the Q6 from service on NYMR due to a defect with its driving axle boxes.

Given the Q6 cannot be repaired in time for the NELPG special trains on 8th November, we have decided to postpone the planned ‘thank you’ day until next year rather than substitute with an alternative locomotive.

NELPG therefore wishes to apologise to everyone planning to travel for the disappointment which this may cause but, equally, we did not wish anyone to have made a special journey to the NYMR only to find the Q6 could not run.

We sincerely hope that everyone will be able to join us in the Spring when we hope to reschedule the event.
