MNR hosts various diesel locomotives and carriages which spent most of their British Rail service lives south of the Thames in “the Strong Country”. [Strong was a brewer, using trackside adverts]
MNR’s fleet includes locomotives 50019 [Ramillies] and 73210; plus several carriages and a “3-CIG” unit No 1497; they will recreate that “Southern” atmosphere.
50019 with the ‘Intercity’ Blue/Grey coaching set will operate a semi fast style service, as eg went to Salisbury from Waterloo, not always stopping at intermediate stations. [to hear a Class 50 throbbing through Surbiton cutting, as I went to and from work in the 1980’s, was very enthralling, and a very impressive noise-said Leslie Dale MNR PRO]
3-CIG powered by 73210 will provide the ‘all stations’ stopping train, as eg between Southampton and Weymouth; please use this train to get off at intermediate stations.
MNR’s Event Fares apply.
Adult Return £10, Senior £9, Family £26, Day Rover £18, Member Day Rover £12, 2 day Rover £30. Children at half full adult fares.
Breakfast or Afternoon Tea will be served on our Mk3 dining coach, which is part of the Intercity set, on both days – see the timetable for the services on which these are available.
