Military Memories Event - Apedale Valley Light Railway November 2015

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


Just to let you know that the last event of the season (with the exception of Santa trains!) at the Apedale Valley Light Railway (www.avlr.org.uk) is the "Military Memories" weekend - 7/8th November from 11:30 to 4pm each day.


It is planned to operate demonstration First World War, Second World War and Cold War era trains during the weekend over the whole site.

In addition the ever popular Trench will be open, staffed by members from the Gordon Highlanders living History group - who will enact various scenarios dueing the weekend.


Passenger trains will be running and the adjacent heritage centre will be open - with the all important cafe serving up the local Staffordshire delicasy of Oatcakes.


Vintage and Classic military vehicles are welcome to attend - attached is the entry form for anyone interested. Please feel free to roll up on the day! [ATTACH]109065[/ATTACH]


Many thanks,

Just a quick reminder that this weekend (7/8th November) is the end-of-season Military Memories event at Apedale.


This presents a rare chance to see the WW1 Joffre loco (KS3014) in steam at its home railway this year, the Hudswell 0-6-0WT loco will be in steam too, shed visits, the trench tramway operating, Gordon Highlanders Living history group manning the trench and various diesels in use on military trains (representing all periods from WW1 through to the present day).

The Heritage centre café will no doubt be doing a roaring trade in delicious hot savoury Oatcakes (a local speciality) too!


Let’s face it, there’s not much else to do at this time of year.
