1940's Weekend

24th & 25th August 2019
 

The TSR and the Allies NEED YOU!

The 1940’s returns to Telford Steam Railway! After the allies were successful in the capture of a German operative last year in the German occupied Lawley Lines, they are back with a vengeance. This year the Allies will have to battle through as the outcome of the war hangs in the balance!

Join us for our 1940's Weekend of Intrigue, espionage, chases, gun battles, tension, drama; all will be played out on the day and you can help. The Resistance are understaffed, the Allies spread too thin. Where can they look for help to locate and capture the Operative? Are you ready to do your bit for the War effort? Can you make a difference?
The TSR and the Allies need you!
