Getting all steamed up at Goole Museum

If you have a passion for steam trains, come along to Goole Museum on Wednesday, 4 July from 5pm to 6.30pm and get together with other enthusiasts.

Growing up watching trains from her bedroom window in Goole, Anna Dixon has a lifelong passion for steam trains. She will display some of her photographs and share her extensive knowledge.

Anna has bigger things in mind though – she really wants to see if there is enough support to build a Vincent Raven Pacific A8 tank engine. Only 49 were ever built and they are all now sadly gone. The last one worked shunting passenger coaching stock at Hull’s Paragon Station until October, 1960.

This meeting is to discover if there are enough like-minded people out there who would be interested in becoming involved in this project. Anna said: ‘I am sure there are still people out there with the passion, and businesses with the right skills, to see this engine built. It would be a fantastic achievement for Goole if we could do this.’

Further information about this project will be posted on Facebook groups – Steam Shed Goole and NELPEG (North Eastern Locomotive Preservation Group).
