Ride To Dartmouth To Mark D-Day 80th Anniversary

Original Facebook post from Dartmouth Steam Railway and River Boat Company:

We are beyond excited to be re-staging history with special services over three days to commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

Every other passenger service running between Paignton Queen’s Park and Kingswear on Tuesday, June 4. Wednesday June 5, and Thursday June 6 – the exact anniversary of D-Day – will be hauled by none other than USATC S160 2-8-0 No. 2253 Omaha – retracing the steps that fellow S160s made in the build up to the event which saved the world from tyranny in its worst manifestation. 🚂

We will dive headfirst in to the history of Omaha over the coming weeks.
