Unfortunately ‘Knowle’ will be unable to make the journey from the Kent & East Sussex Railway to appear as a guest engine at the Severn Valley Railway’s Spring Steam Gala.
The engine requires some urgent mechanical maintenance and in the short term will only be undertaking limited light duties at her home line. It is still planned for ‘Knowle’ to appear alongside ‘Poplar’ for the Kent & East Sussex Railway’s ‘Best of British’ celebrations to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – from 2 to 5 June 2022.
The Severn Valley Railway’s Spring Steam Gala nevertheless boasts an impressive line-up of locomotives and we wish them every success with the event. Full details can be found here.
