J15 AVR Charter and Santas

The J15 has been kept busy on the Avon Valley Railway during November and will be in use again this December.

On the 11th November, the J15 was steamed for a Martin Creese photocharter which saw it hauling an excellent pre-grouping freight train. The charter produced some atmospheric night time shots at the AVR's Bitton station.

The AVR have continued to use the J15 for their Santa Special services. The locomotive will be in use for the 10th, 22nd, 23rd and 24th December. For more information on these, please visit the AVR website:
