The Picnic Train has recently been devoting time and volunteers to readying steam locomotive R766 for mainline trials.
R766 has received a brand new paint job and has undergone required safety checks and maintenance before the engine can hit the Mainline. The engine has passed its branch line trial tests including crew training for drivers and fireman.
Below is the latest update video including exciting footage from its branch line running.
