Section 5  -  Members Activities


From time to time, depending on the occasion, trips and events have been organised on the SVR and at other locations. Special trains often hauled by HE686 have also been arranged and three Special Weekends in October & November 1998 were organised at East Lancs Railway (Bury), Middleton Railway Trust (Leeds) and Severn Valley Railway (kidderminster and Bewdley) to Celebrate the Centenary of HE686.
