P2 Roadshow for 2020

We will be holding a series of roadshows across Great Britain in 2020. The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust, also the builders, owners and operators of 100mph famous new steam locomotive No. 60163 Tornado, has announced that it will be holding a number of presentations on the project to build new Gresley class P2 No. 2007 Prince of Wales in 2020.

Each presentation will feature key Trust personnel including Mark Allatt (Head of PR, Marketing and Fundraising) and/or David Elliott (Director of Engineering) and will cover the background to the project, progress to-date, future plans and details of how to get involved. Entry into each roadshow is free. The presentation will start promptly at 11:00hrs until 13:00hrs on each of the days listed below and are open to existing supporters and members of the public:

  • 10th October  Great Northern Hotel, Peterborough POSTPONED

P2 Open Days at Darlington Locomotive Works  

The works are open* to the public on the first and third Saturday of each month, the latter a day that coincides with NELPG also opening their doors to visitors – 11:00hrs to 16:00hrs.

*Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, our staff are still working from home or at Darlington Locomotive Works (DLW) where they are taking all the necessary precautions. The Works remain closed to volunteers, non-essential staff and visitors. We hope you understand that these circumstances are beyond our control and the restrictions are very necessary at this challenging time. We are reviewing all of our activities on a frequent basis to protect everyone involved with the Trust and to secure our long-term future. Please keep an eye on our website and Facebook pages for updates or call 01325 460163 or email e if you have any questions.
