after the sale of the Virgin Voyager 3 car set, the railway has purchased two Ex Virgin MK2 coaches. these will run with the MK1's giving an almost railtour feel for our customers. with a further sale of the giraffe car, some wagons and the Ex BR Intercity 125 HST power car, we hope to purchase some more stock or indeed, look to the future and extending the line north.
