Opening of track extension 15th May 2022

The outer loop extension towards Brigsley Road was officially opened on Sunday 15th May 2022 by Strictly Come Dancing winner Joanne Clifton,
(centre first carriage), who was born in Waltham and recalled how she enjoyed riding the trains as a child with her parents.

The official opening train on the new extension hauled by a 7.25in Class 66.

Also in action that day was 7.25in "Henrietta". This locomotive had operated at the Cleethorpes Wonderland railway in 1950s before moving to Cumbria.

"Henrietta" stops for a signal check where the new line joins the old line before the tunnel.

Same place as Britannia Class 70014 "Iron Duke" is also checked by the signals.

"Henrietta" about to emerge from the tunnel on way back to the station.
