6960 Raveningham Hall

Following the conclusion of the temporary summer hire agreement, I’m pleased to

announce that 6960 Raveningham Hall is staying on the Severn Valley Railway until

2021, at which point the locomotives boiler certification will have expired. We

are grateful to Locomotive 6960 Ltd for negotiating this further period of operation

with the SVR.


Since returning to the line in May 2019, ‘Ratbag’ has clocked up 4118 miles in 59

steaming days – this included featuring at the highly successful Autumn Steam Gala

Event.


I like many others will look forward to seeing her in action on the line as required

during the Festive Period and into the 2020 season.
