Henschel 1091 ran passenger services on 29 and 30 May, with the Polish coach and Trecwn coach being used on the latter date due to the wet weather. On the following weekend trains were operated by the Hunslet Diesel on Saturday and Sunday for the Emergency Services Gala. The diesel will be the usual power on Sundays during June and July, except on 19 June when JUSTINE is due to run on the Classic Vehicles day ( also the GWR diesel gala ) and again on 10 July which is the Vintage Bus Rally at Toddington.
Further work has been carried out on carriage no. 1 with a bogie swap being done in an effort to give a smoother ride on this vehicle. Work progresses on the Hibberd petrol loco with several new parts being fitted.

The railway aquired some Hudson tipper wagons many years ago and these are currently being renovated ensuring the axleboxes are properly lubricated and are being painted for the first time since aquisition.
