The Beattie Bash is being held at Buckinghamshire Railway Centre over the Bank Holiday weekend.

On Sunday May 29 and Bank Holiday Monday May 30 two 142-year-old sister locomotives will run together. The centre’s own Beattie well tank No. 30585 will be reunited with her sister engine, Beattie well tank No. 30587, who is visiting for a special weekend to celebrate these two beautiful veteran locomotives built in 1874.

Also on Bank Holiday Monday, the centre in Quainton is holding its annual Heritage Bus Rally which includes a Heritage Bus link from Aylesbury Vale Parkway railway station, so visitors can travel without using the car.
