Direct Rail Services (DRS) are hosting their annual charity open day at Carlisle Kingmoor depot this year, on Saturday 22nd July 2017 (ie this Saturday).

https://www.directrailservices.com/news-...-day-2017/

Doors will be open 1000-1600. £5 entry on the gate.
Easiest way to get there will be on the Stagecoach in Cumbria 76 from Carlisle City Centre/Courts (for Rail Station) to the Redfern Inn. Walk back along the bus and turn right at the T junction - continue along this road over the railway line and you'll find the depot sign!

Plenty on display, including a look around various cabs and interiors of DRS' fleet. Face painting for the kids, also a naming of a locomotive.
A raffle will be drawn on the hour for the chance to start up a locomotive also.


If you can, please do pop along. Smile

I'm told that northern156 will be providing a barbecue - there's an incentive to go, if his post did not persuade you!

There will be no barbecue. Mostly due to the fact I'm not paying for one.

As an aside, a hog roast van normally appears with various other burger vans. In previous years the food has been lovely.
