SR ‘U’ Class 31806 for 2015 Autumn Steam Gala

The KWVR is pleased to announce that Southern Railways U Class 2-6-0 – No. 31806 will be our second visitor to the Autumn Steam Gala taking place Friday 9th – Sunday 11th October.

Affectionately known as the “U-boat”, 31806 is owned by John Bunch and in the care of Swanage Railway and we are grateful for the locomotive being made available to us.

Starring alongside our other guest locomotive, rebuilt Battle of Britain Class Pacific 34053 ‘Sir Keith Park’, the Gala has a strong Southern Railways line up, with unrebuilt West Country Pacific 34092 ‘Wells’ & Standard 4MT 4-6-0 No. 75078 (which should, by then, be resplendent in a fully lined out British Railways livery).
