About this event

We are pleased to present a fantastic opportunity to photograph for the first time on a TimeLine Event evening at Didcot Railway Centre the brand new engine that is Lady of Legend 2999! To compliment this outstanding achievement we are pleased to also offer the unique opportunity to capture another stalwart of the Great Western, 1450 which is also in appropriate GWR livery. And that's not all, in addition to this wonderful pairing we will also bring appropriate liveried 5900 Hinderton Hall back to life with the use of our famous smoke machines. What could be a better place to spend a Summer's evening that in the most original Steam Shed in the UK photographing a fantastic array of Great Western power.

2999 Lady of Legend has just made her debut at the Centre and is now set to take centre stage this Summer so what better way to welcome her into the fray than to see her on shed recreating those scenes of the past when steam locos were prepared on sheds up and down the land. After dark we will be posing the locos under our lights outside shed before retreating inside for the now famous scenes made even more special by a selection of our band of hard working Re-Enactors. 

We expect this event to be popular so advise early booking.
