Just a Reminder about the 'Sir Keith Park Steam Weekend' tomorrow and Sunday (17th & 18th October) at the Spa Valley Railway, that runs between Eridge (which has Main Line direct connections to London Bridge, East Croydon, Oxted , Crowborough, Uckfield, etc) and Tunbridge Wells.

There are still tickets available (see the link below) and the Seating in all Coaches on the Train is strictly in accordance with 'Covid-19' safe separation arrangements and facilities.

On the weekend of 26th & 27th June 2021, 'Battle of Britain Class' 34053 'Sir Keith Park' will take on the identity 'West Country Class' 34095 'Brentor', at the Spa Valley Railway.

This will be part of a requested 'Private Charter' that weekend.

['Brentor' entered service in October 1949; was rebuilt in January 1961; withdrawn in July 1967 and cut up at Cashmores, Newport, in April 1968].
