The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway has announced that GWR King Class No. 6023 King Edward II will be attending their “Cotswold Festival of Steam” gala in May this year.
This is the second year running that 6023 will feature at the Cotswold Festival of Steam, having visiting alongside 70013 Oliver Cromwell last year.
6023 can usually be seen at DRC, in both steam and on display with DRC’s large fleet of GWR engines. Unlike fellow preserved class members 6000 King George V and 6024 King Edward I, 6023 carries BR Lined Blue with Early Crest livery and a single chimney.
6023 joins a line-up of various GWR-designed engines from different classes and SR Merchant Navy 35006 Peninsular & Oriental SN Co.
On top of this, Broadway Station, completed in 2018, will be in use, meaning trains will make use of the whole line.
It is still early days, so more information will be announced soon.
