The Rudyard Lake Steam Railway, will be holding there anual Steam Gala on the 13th and 14th september.
The railway hasn’t got a visiting 10.25” gauge loco lined up this year, unfortunely.

As well as all five steam locos Excalibur, Merlin, Pendragon, King Authur & Waverley.
With the newly restored Rudyard Lady, and newly built Sir Ernie, & mordred on shed for photos.

a day rover ticcket will get you access on all the railways, for as many trips as you want.
