31452, the Train to Christmas Town traction, will be used as motive power for a Class 31 Weekend on Jan 20th and 21st.

Each day will comprise 3 round trips between Okehampton and Coleford Junction with 31452 on the Crediton end and 1 trip per day from Okehampton to siding 12 at Meldon Quarry and back to Okehampton.

Update 18/01/2018. We're sorry to announce that 08937/D4167 will not be available for the weekend. The timetable is unchanged, but all trains will run with just 31452.

We will be using the buffet coach from the TtCT rake (Mk2 RFB 1213) for drinks/food etc. Rocket (Mk1 generator DB 977335) will be part of the consist, but not accessible to the public.

As usual, DRSA volunteers will be needed on both days.
