Doncaster Rail Week 5-12 February 2015

Doncaster Grammar School Railway Collection - Mansion House, Doncaster, 5-12 February 2015, 11am - 4pm daily. FREE ENTRY

The origins of this legendary collection date back to 1936. A personal gift from Sir Nigel Gresley

was the very first item, with nameplates and other memorabilia being added over the years by

the pupils and teachers at the school, resulting in what must surely be one of the finest private

collections anywhere. Pre-dating the National Railway Museum by several decades, but hidden

from public view, this is the collection’s first dedicated public exhibition of selected items.

Cock O'The North Fundraising Dinner - Mansion House, Doncaster, 6 February 2015 6pm (For 7pm). Tickets £47.50

with guest speaker Bob Gwynne, Associate Curator of Rail Vehicles at the National Railway Museum and senior members of

the Doncaster P2 Locomotive Trust. Tickets and details are available from Doncaster's Tourist Information Centre. Tel: 01302 734309 for more information.

Doncaster Railway Convention - Mansion House, Doncaster, 7 February 2015, 11am-4pm. FREE ENTRY

A series of talks about Doncaster's railway heritage including the history of Doncaster Grammar School Railway Collection and the exciting project to

rebuild the iconic P2 locomotive Cock o'the North designed and built in Doncaster in 1934. Doncaster Heritage Services' Local Studies and Archives team are also

on hand to explain about the men and women  who worked at the Plant Works and the records held about them.
