Next weekend marks 25 years of running trains from Butterley station on the Midland Railway Butterley. To celebrate this we are holding a special 3 day Silver Jubilee Weekend running from Saturday 26-Monday 28 August. Visiting locomotive will be 71000 Duke of Gloucester, top-and-tailed with our own Standard Caprotti 5 73129, making this the first time you'll be able to see the 2 remaining Caprottis running side-by-side. 25 locomotives will be turned out on both Standard and Narrow Gauge running lines as well as unique photographic opportunities throughout the weekend at Swanwick Shed.
