We are pleased to confirm that the formalities around Wissington's visit to Beamish Open Air Museum (as first reported in February) have been completed. The loco will move to Durham early next month and should be in service on the museum's demonstration line after her 'fitness to run' test on 16th June. We expect her to be used on about 60 days across the summer before she returns to Norfolk in time for Members Day in October. Beamish is a wonderful museum anyway and, if you're in the area, why not pay it a visit and see how 'Wissie' is doing.
