Wanted

The Spa Valley Railway, based in Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, is actively seeking to hire a DMMU power car from February to late October 2017. This is to cover for an unplanned shortage of our own DEMU 'Thumper' unit. Currently our railway operates for 5 1/4 miles between Tunbridge Wells West in Kent to Eridge in East Sussex, the final mile of the route operating parallel to the national rail network, quite a unique attraction. We are already home to a Class 101 Trailer Car (56408) and the idea would be to pair the hired in power car with our own 101 trailer. The period of hire would include several operating day throughout the year, primarily during school holidays, which were originally allocated to our DEMU. It is our 20th anniversary since the line re-opened during 2017 and a visiting unit would also play part with these all year round celebrations. We are lucky to already have people trained and competent to operate DMMUs from other railways and have in the past operated a Class 115 unit paired with our 101. Should a visit be possible, the operational period of a visiting DMMU would commence over the weekend of 4th & 5th February and extend through the end of October (28th & 29th).
