The Amerton Railway staged a very successful Wren Gala over the weekend of 22th and 23rd June where three Kerr Stuart Wrens 3114/1918, Peter Pan 4256/1922 and Pixie 4260/1922 operating a variety of passenger and goods trains on the newly extended one mile line. Pearl 2 and Isabel were also in steam, but it was the Wren’s that completely stole the show! This is probably the first time that three Wrens have been in steam together for upwards of 50 years. The three engines were lined up every evening for photographers. The railway carried around 2000 passengers over the two days and there were dozens of photograghers in the fields.
Peter Pan and Pixie departed on the Sunday evening, with Pixie continuing on back to Belgium, but 3114 will stay with stay aty Amerton until around October and will be steamed on selected Sundays hauling demonstration goods trains
