A one-off chance to shoot historic steam & diesel locomotives in authentic surroundings!

The Carnforth Depot is re-opening to the public for the first time in more than a decade ? for two days only. This very special weekend event takes place to mark the 40th anniversary of the end of BR steam ? which centred on Carnforth in August 1968 ? and the Railway Magazine is delighted to offering a unique opportunity to visit and photograph this famous location at a discounted rate.

Don?t miss the two special photo events for a once-in-a- lifetime opportunity to shoot a historic display of steam and diesel locomotives ? without the crowds! An evening shoot takes place on 25 July at 8pm-10pm, and an early entry ticket is available on 26 July from 8am. Numbers are strictly limited, so book today to avoid disappointment.

Carnforth retains many original steam depot features such as the coaling tower, ash disposal plant and LMS shed building. The ash plant is the last of its type left in the country and the coaling plant is one of only two survivors.

Carnforth, designated 10A in the 1960?s, serviced the last-ever main line steam locos to work on BR in August 1968 and will play host during the open weekend to a range of steam and diesel locomotives in authentic surroundings, providing countless photo opportunities.

Tickets are selling fast. Make sure your part of the biggest photo opportunity of this 40th anniversary year – book your ticket today!
