25th Aniversary Celebration

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Roundhouse's closure by British Rail.  

 

Although the Roundhouse is normally open each weekend, this one was a little more special because of the anniversary date.  We had excursions up the Springfield Branch, hauled by the Peckett steam loco.  The return journey was controlled by our class 03, joined by an 02 and for a short while an 08 made it a very unusual triple headed trip.

 

Some images captured during the event by some of our enthusiastic visitors.
