Velinheli on Tour

This summer our locomotive Velinheli will be touring England and Wales, visiting a number of different railways and events.


We are now able to confirm the full list of events in her diary:

  • 20th – 22nd May: Fawley Hill Vintage Extravaganza
  • 12th-13th August: Shrewsbury Flower Show
  • 18th-21st August: Southport Flower Show
  • 26th – 29th August: Bala Lake Railway Steam Gala
  • 9th-11th September: Welsh Highland Railway Superpower: Welsh Highland Great & Small III
  • And finally 23rd-28th October: a triumphant return home to Launceston for the October half term week!

Between the events at Fawley Hill and Shrewsbury, and during September, she will be based at the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways and in regular use for various activities such as footplate rides at Porthmadog Harbour station.

The list of events may be subject to changes or additions through the summer – to keep right up to date with Velinheli’s tour make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.  If you see Velinheli out and about we’d love to see you photos on social media too!
