To make up for having had to bring forward by a week the dates for our "Works Outing" gala, we ran a special Heritage Diesel weekend on 21st and 22nd September 2019. This featured two of our heritage diesel locomotives running on each day, including running down the little-used Balm Road branch.

On each day normal fares applied, but a special timetable was in operation, as follows.

Moor Road Depart Balm Road Arrive Balm Road Depart Moor Road Arrive Moor Road Depart Park Halt Arrive Park Halt Depart Moor Road Arrive
11:00 11:05 11:07 11:12 11:20 11:28 11:35 11:45
11:50 11:55 11:57 12:02 12:10 12:18 12:25 12:35
12:40 12:45 12:47 12:52 13:00 13:08 13:15 13:25
14:00 14:05 14:07 14:12 14:20 14:28 14:35 14:45

15:40 15:45 15:47 15:52 16:00 16:08 16:15 16:25

 

Which locomotives operated on each day was fixed nearer the date, once we were sure that qualified crews were available.
