Event description

Description

We are pleased to share details of our visit in 2019 to the very special Threlkeld Quarry and Mining Museum .

This former quarry is now home to a mining museum, an extensive collection of mechanical diggers , two foot gauge railway and all in fabulous scenery

Visiting engines this year are Bagnall "Kidbrooke" of 1917 from Yaxham alongside three engines from our good friends at the Statfold Barn Railway , Ex Southam Cement works Peckett w/n 1632/1923 "Liassic" . Kerr Stuart w/n 3128/1918 "Roger" and new build quarry Hunslet "Jack Lane"
Our event will follow the normal routine with shed scenes , steam raising and loco preparation from 8am . Many of the scenes feature the stunning lakeland scenery and Blencathra

Our events endeavour to create as many photo opportunities as possible at the superb location in the lake district . From the superb stone engine shed to the quarry face and the vast collection of diggers . This year will also feature more track on the new extension away from the quarry .

Finish is anticipated around 5:30 to 6pm . Please be aware that a fair amount of walking on rocky terrain is needed at this location . we will where possible try and move people around by train

Cost this year I have reduced to £60 which with four visiting engines I hope you will agree is good value
