Dorothea’s Week a Great Success

The October half term week, where we celebrated the return to steam of Dorothea after 70 years, was a great success. Many visitors took the opportunity to see and ride behind Dorothea on her first regular passenger trains. Despite being fresh from her restoration to working order, Dorothea behaved well throughout the week with no problems; though like our other locomotives she has her own particular quirks which the drivers have had to get used to!

The local BBC television news programme ‘Spotlight’ featured a piece on Dorothea, which you can see here.
