The virtual weekend with ‘City of Wells’ was a great success in the Spring sunshine. Now we enter Easter fortnight with a whole week of virtual passenger trains. For the weekend we time-warped back to 2015. For the weekday running and Good Friday its back one more year, to 2014 when three locomotives share duties.
The weekday service is in the hands of 43924 and, after returning from overhaul, earlier in the year in a pseudo-BR black livery as 95820, Good Friday sees ‘Big Jim’ re-appear in its newly applied authentic grey USATC livery together with a miraculously overhauled WD 90733. And if that was not enough, the morning diesel service will see the railbus replaced by diesel locomotive haulage.
