Postponement of Q6 special train on 30th May 2015


With regret, the planned member’s special with the Q6 on the Wensleydale Railway has had to be postponed, and on behalf of the Group I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

The extent of the driving wheel axle box repairs at Grosmont has proved to be far greater than expected. Despite a series of committed working parties by members, its reassembly and steaming will not be able to be completed in time for its planned use on the Wensleydale Railway during the last two weekends in May.

The aspiration to run the Q6 on the Wensleydale Railway, prior to the NYMR main season, remains and once revised dates are confirmed we propose to update you with a new date to enjoy and complete a members run behind 63395 on this line.

Once again apologies are extended for having to postpone the event to those who have booked this trip via Bryan Orange and your understanding of the need to make this change would be appreciated.

I trust that you will inform any guests that you were proposing to bring to this event of the contents of this note.
