A special train was run for working members of the East Lancashire Railway on the evening 22nd July 2017 celebrating 30 Years of operation. The train was hauled by MSC 0-6-0T 32 Gothenburg (up to Ramsbottom), which hauled the reopening train back in 1987. The train was double headed with D832 Onslaught which took the train onto Rawtenstall.
