Harringay's history as a suburb was shaped by steam trains from the get-go. In recent years steam train pleasure trips have started passing through both Harringay & Harringay Green Lanes stations regularly.
A member recently asked to be kept up to date with when steam trains will be passing through. This group has been set up for that purpose.
Join up and as long as you have your settings adjusted, whenever anyone posts a new thread about a train passing through you'll get an update.
We won't be posting the times ourselves; that'll be up to the eagle-eyed and enthusiastic amongst us.
