MIDDLETON RAILWAY

Victorian Gala

15th July 2016

The Middleton Railway's 2016 Gala, was billed as a Victorian Gala, featuring four Victorian locomotives, with Bellerophon visiting. This joined home based Sir Berkeley and Ingrow West based Lord Major, the two other locomotives owned by the Vintage Carriages Trust. This gave the group and the line the chance to line up the Trust's locomotives for what is believed to be the first time.
