Would a 1971 Series 2a safari Landrover qualify?

What if an old bus with 40 people turns up? Do they all get in free? It's a "vintage road vehicle"?

Does it include vintage steam engines?

If there are six people in it do they all get in free?

Angela Daly Eric French

Does this count for motorcycles too?

I didn’t know that

When does a vehicle become 'vintage'?

Trains too

Does this apply to me too?!

We're incredibly excited to announce that we've just signed a deal to move the entire Heritage Centre brick by brick to the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar.

We expect the transportation and rebuilding to be completed early next year with opening day planned for 30th February 2020.

Will you be taking a trip to visit us in our new home?

Happy April 1st everyone! Did we manage to get you? Or did you see right through it? 🙂

You guys have a ‘Rock’ solid case for this exciting commitment! 😬🙄🙄🙄

Excellent idea ... perhaps you could float the engines over on helium to save a few bob on transport ?

Andrew, you miss timed your trip!!!!!!!!

I got confused.. Never heard of Gibraltar..

Nice one. For a minute you had me wondering.

James J Collins

Can I have a job there

Well the airport site is ideal, it already has a level crossing!!!😁😁

Nice one...but a long way to go before you beat Dimbleby's Spaghetti Harvest !

You could end up with a big bill.

Any body know flight times on a Wednesday morning?

30th February 😂

Will the cost of getting be included in the current admissuon price?

I demand another vote!

Pinch punch 1st of the month 😂😂😂😂😂

I blame Brexit for the move🤣

ur having a lirpa loof. now. !!!! 🤣👍

Nice try..

Haha , don’t let Boris see this , he would put it in his manifesto... or on the side of a bus !! 😂

I blame Bregsit !

April fools

Give a wide birth!!!! We went and were sold a broken bloody tractor with a temp fix which broke when at home. Ripped off by grumpy old men!!!

Are there any stalls available? Does anyone have any contact details for the organisers, other than a postal address?

is there another one later in the year?

How much does it cost for Entrance? Or is it free as it’s not on the advertisements!

I would have loved to have a stall at this event, but the website states that the Heritage Centre is still closed.

How much is the entrance fee?

Dam, I’m in work tomorrow 🥺

Due to operational commitments by various TOCs resulting in a lack of available locomotives, we have reluctantly had to cancel the planned Diesel Gala weekend for the start of the 2019 season. We will however be open from April 6th when all our regular attractions will be available.

We welcome back the newly extended ‘45C Westlands’ OO Model Railway layout that will be on display for the first three weekends in April.

Happy Burns Night!
Born on 25 January 1759 in Alloway, Scotland, the famous poet Robert Burns became a great source of inspiration to the founders of both liberalism and socialism, and a cultural symbol not only in Scotland but all over the world.

Did you know that the Crewe Heritage Centre is home to the Crewe built electric locomotive 87 035 that was named Robert Burns in April 1978, a name that it still holds to this day.

Would you like to learn more about our Class 87 locomotive? Then why not head over to the BREL Class 87 '87035' page for a behind the scenes look at some of the restoration work currently going on.

I'd just like to say thank you to Crewe Heritage Centre for the open day last weekend (Dec 8-9/12/18). Alexander, Alice & I enjoyed the steam train ride and exploring the full size locomotives & rolling stock. You've got a really great set up. All the best for 2019. We'll be seeing you again soon!

At precisely 11am, the guards whistle sounded in the hall of Crewe Heritage Centre, the air raid siren rang out at Crewe locomotive works and we all stood still to remember the fallen.

Graham Wood, grandson of Private W. Wood V.C is seen in the cab of 5551, Gareth Atkinson who serves in the 1st Battalion of the Mercian Regiment is proudly stood with Simon Weston.

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who came to see ‘The Unknown Warrior’ this weekend, it is everyone’s national memorial locomotive. Thank you for your support.

***This Weekend***

We’re ready for the doors to open at Crewe Heritage Centre at 10am tomorrow morning!

For the first time ever, ‘The Unknown Warrior’ is now wearing an LMS smokebox number plate and she has been dressed to mark the centenary of the armistice recreating a tradition that was done in steam days with the original memorial engine named ‘Patriot’.

Her boiler is in, buffers are polished and the new crest is in place ready for unveiling tomorrow by our Patron, Simon Weston CBE.

All the details of this special weekend of events that includes a heritage bus service to the excellent Alsager Model Railway Show can be found on our website at www.lms-patriot.org.uk/

We look forward to welcoming you.
