River Irt and Katie heading for the Great North Steam Fair at Beamish Museum

We are delighted to announce that “River Irt” from the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway and “Katie” from the Ravenglass Railway Museum will be visiting Beamish Museum for the Great North Steam Fair.

The event, which is held annually, will take place at Beamish from 11th – 14th April and displays a wide variety of road and rail transport exhibits in operation around the museum. A short demonstration line has been laid in The Colliery area and it will be possible for visitors to take a short ride on a train hauled by these locomotives. They will be the first 15-inch gauge locomotives to operate at the museum.
