Annual Steam Gala 2019



North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) will host its Annual Steam Gala from Friday 27th September to Sunday 29th September, with a combination of guest locomotives and home fleet engines in steam over the weekend.

6990 Witherslack Hall will be visiting the railway from Great Central Railway. 6990 Witherslack Hall was built in 1948 in Swindon. It was primarily located at Old Oak Common depot until it was withdrawn in January 1966. It arrived at the Great Central Railway in 1975 and has been a resident ever since, and has been a popular and regular sight on the heritage railway.

GWR 6000 Class 6023 King Edward II from Didcot Railway Centre will also be visiting. 6023 locomotive was built in the 1930s at the Great Western Railway's works in Swindon. It was used on many routes between London Paddington and the West of England before being taken out of service in 1962. It spent time at a scrap yard in Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan before being moved to a platform close to Bristol's Temple Meads railway station where some restoration work took place.
