As members will know, our Peckett 0-4-0ST Kilmersdon has been successfully fully overhauled at the Ropley workshops of the Mid-Hants Watercress Line. The engine entered service in August 2022 and was an immediate ‘hit’ with the Thomas event, indeed at times the only steam locomotive able to be seen during the very hot weather of that period!
Since then, Kilmersdon has been used on special event days including the children’s half-term in February this year. The engine will be used again in 2023 for two Thomas events and other galas etc but is available for hire in between those periods, particularly after October 2023.
Any enquiries should be sent to me, Roger Hardingham, at the Trust’s address or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
