The Friends of Kirklees Light Railway are hosting their 13th Annual Steam & Diesel Gala Weekend over the weekend of 8 & 9 September 2018.

Locomotives built by the Exmoor Steam Railway will be at the forefront of this year's Steam & Diesel Gala Weekend!

Visiting locomotives include Spirit of Adventure and Anne from the Perrygrove Railway, and Monty and St. Egwin from the Evesham Vale Light Railway.

These locomotives will operate alongside the KLRs home fleet of Badger, Hawk, Owl, Katie, Sin, Jay and Tram No.7.

The only McLaren steamroller in Britain will also be on display alongside a display of interesting and vintage vehicles including a Likeamobile Steam Car, Wallis and Stevens Traction Engine, Bullnose Morris, vintage tractors and motorcycles.  There will be a beer tent hosted by the Denby Dale Lions and a model railway and engineering exhibition.  At Shelley, visitors will have the chance to take part in Donor Drivers a chance to drive one of the KLR locomotives for a suitable donation - alongside tram rides and turntable talks.

 

Trains will be departing Clayton West every 30 minutes from 9.30 until 17.00 and a detailed timetable will be available at the event. As per tradition, the Gala will culminate on the Sunday with as many locomotives as possible hauling the 5pm departure to Shelley - "Shelley or Bust!"
