We are pleased to announce another tour that will be hauled by D9009 this year. ‘ALYCIDON’ will now haul Pathfinder Tours’ “Welsh Central Liner”, a circular trip from Burton and pick-ups in the Midlands plus Cheltenham/Gloucester/Chepstow which then travels over the scenic Central Wales line after which there will be a late afternoon break in Shrewsbury before returning via the Welsh Marches to Chepstow and, ultimately, Burton. This tour was originally advertised to be hauled by D1015 ‘WESTERN CHAMPION’, which is no longer available due to suffering an engine problem last month. We wish our friends in the Diesel Traction Group all the best in returning the loco to full working order.
Full details regarding the tour, which is now open for bookings, can be found on Pathfinder’s website by CLICKING HERE.
