New year’s Day Steam & Light Festival to have Bus Service

Join us for your first steam train ride of 2024 and visit the Historic Lighting Association’s spectacular display of vintage oil lamps dating from the mid-Victorian era. The Middy makes a superb setting for these wonderful appliances, many of the real works of art in their own right.

To make the day even more fun, our friends from the Eastern Counties Bus Preservation Group will be running their shuttle service from Stowmarket Station to the MIddy during the day, which means that if you come by Network Rail, or just live in the Stowmarket area, there’s an easy transfer to the MSLR. This is the bus to look for, not John Durrant our Loco Superintendent standing by the door.

Duty loco will be ‘Wissington’ and you can ride the trains as often as you like during your visit.

Tickets at the Ticket Office only – no advance booking available for this event.
