Three Victorian steam engines will be in full flow as part of a gala at Middleton Railway this weekend.

The Sir Berkeley engine, which is based at the railway’s station in Moor Road, Hunslet, will be in action alongside two engines, Bellerophon and Lord Mayor, on loan from the Vintage Carriages Trust.

It will be the first time that the engines have appeared on one site in 40 years. Steam services will run on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Visit middletonrailway.org.uk.

Campaigners urge new owners of cherished Leeds mill to reach out - and ‘help us tell and re-tell the Temple Works story’
