Steam trains in Sheffield megathread

Recommended Posts

the Flying Scotsman stopped running in 2006 but I did see it when I used to work at Acorn Business Park on Woodseats Road, so to answer your question yes you may have seen it in the past.

 

For anyone who didn't get to see it you can go and visit it in York Museum.

I think steamies operate on the line more than once a year.

I think so far this year there's been at least three steam locomotives going along this line but wouldn't like to suggest anywhere where you could get advance info, if anything occurs to me i'll post it.

Where the info is in the public people do put the times where known on here . Keep an eye on this forum.

 

Alot of the steam specials now go via the back line so they can be serviced at barrow hill round house

 

 

Looking through the list there is none listed for this line

Hi, a steam train has just gone through Totley and Dore station, whistles and all.. Just wondered if anyone knows if it was for a special event? Very nostalgic :)

 

Thank You
