English Electric Weekend




We've had confirmation today from DR that this event is definitely on, with a timetable to be released shortly. Sadly 31285 won't be available.



On the weekend of June 8th and 9th, Dartmoor Railway will be running an English Electric Weekend, using the entire DR traction fleet, all of which are EE powered. A two train service will operate, including a 'Beer-Ex' run down to the Network Rail boundary and back on Saturday night. Sunday's service will be restricted to the Okehampton-Meldon section because of the GWR Sunday Rover service.

Tickets will be available online at the discount prices of £15 for adults, £12 for seniors or £8 for children. (We think these are Saturday prices).

Confirmation and more details to follow.
