This was initially being planned by Dennis to be the last main line operation for 9466 so please take this unique chance to travel behind a GWR pannier tank on a classic GWR route on a three-coach branch line train. Dennis worked for 55 years on the railways and was awarded an MBE for his efforts and you can help make this a fitting tribute to him.
