We are delighted to announce, with thanks to the Diesel Traction Group at the Severn Valley Railway, that our first guest locomotive at the Diesel Gala will be Swindon built Diesel Hydraulic locomotive D821 ‘Greyhound’.

Built in 1960 as part of the British Railways modernisation plan, D821 is one of the two preserved Warship class locomotives from the original 38 built by BR at Swindon Works. ‘Greyhound’ is based on the Severn Valley Railway and is used throughout their running season.
