On the weekend of 26th & 27th June 2021, 'Battle of Britain Class' 34053 'Sir Keith Park' will take on the identity 'West Country Class' 34095 'Brentor', at the Spa Valley Railway.

This will be part of a requested 'Private Charter' that weekend.

['Brentor' entered service in October 1949; was rebuilt in January 1961; withdrawn in July 1967 and cut up at Cashmores, Newport, in April 1968].

'Battle of Britain Class' Locomotive 'Sir Keith Park' continues to be a very popular Locomotive at the Spa Valley Railway (SpVR). The 34095 'Brentor' renaming event (mentioned above) was a real success. So much so that this will be repeated on 13th September for a Photographic Event.

'Sir Keith Park' will also be the Locomotive hauling the SpVR 'Polar Express' Trains prior to Christmas. (I understand that some 17,000 tickets have already been sold!).
