    While we're in "what's that in the background" mode, what is this vehicle?

    From my own POV, I'd like to see the two tank wagons restored along with the LMS brake van next.

    Roll up, roll up - today sees the announcement of our upcoming events for the first half of the year...oh, and for any fans of Silent Witness, keep an eye out for some NVR action in tonight's episode at 9pm :)

    2023-03-31 NVR WG FDE DL83.jpg 2023-04-07 NVR WG PC SNG.jpg 2023-06-02 NVR WG FDE 92 Squadron.jpg

    Friday 31st March – Diesel Freight Driving Experience with ex-LU Sentinel DL83

    A new variation on our freight driving course with the opportunity to drive a freight train hauled by DL83 through the tunnel between Wansford and Yarwell. Half the day will be spent driving/riding the fright, and the other half operating the signal box under supervision. £150 per person, light refreshments included and each participant can bring a guest to ride with them in the brake vans.

    Full details and booking on the NVR website: https://nvr.org.uk/product.php/375/dl83-freight-course-new-for-2023/2980e3cc79f4a949d4897937c0af2fe3

    Good Friday 7th April – Photographic Charter with Sir Nigel Gresley on freight

    Freshly outshopped in BR Blue, Sir Nigel Gresley will undertake an evening photo charter with the freight rake after the final passenger service of the day. £40 per person including tea/coffee.

    NB This event is dependent on the Fletton Loop Branch being available for the loco to travel to NVR.

    Friday 2nd June – Southern Goods Driving Experience with 92 Squadron

    Drive and fire 92 Squadron over parts of the 7.5 mile line between Wansford and Peterborough NVR during two complete round trips (two visits to the footplate, split across the round trips). £250 per person, light refreshments included and each participant can bring a guest to ride with them in the brake vans.

    Unsurprisingly, the A4 Charter has sold out already - within four hours of going on sale.

    That suggests to me you could have priced it a fair bit higher! Good news though, bit more in the wagon kitty :)

    It's a tricky one - fitting it between end of service trains and end of daylight on Good Friday means time will be limited, so we tried not to over-price it. But yeah...we may stretch to a small number of extra tickets, but no decision has been made yet - we don't want it to end up too crowded either.

    I remember when the good Mr. Cameron used to bring 60009 to the NVR you were well advised not to try and park a car at Wansford as the parked cars stretched all the way back to the A1 slip road...

    Here's hoping the NVR can get the Fletton Loop sorted in time, then. A recreation of the Down Scotch Goods?
