41313 was launched back into traffic on the 24th June 2017 and it was lovely to see so many people celebrating this historic day with us.
The shining engine hauled passenger trains throughout the day, plus several double headers with Ivatt Class 2 2-6-0 No.46447, which is based at the ESR but also belongs to the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, like 41313.
41313 will remain at the ESR until September and steam with us on selected dates, before returning to the Isle of Wight.
The ESR wishes to thank all of our amazing volunteers for their hard work and giving up their time, it is very much appreciated.
41313 is rostered to operate on the following dates subject to availability:
2nd, 29th and 30th July
26th, 27th and 28th August
10th and 13th September.
