    Are they planning to run trains or just park the guests end to end on the line?

    Sorry Stephen ,but bringing visitors from across the country to then find them unfit for traffic/paperwork issues and parking them up for the gala ,was a NYMR trick from memory.

    "This year we will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the first ever SVR Diesel Gala, held in May 1987, and we are really pushing out the boat with up to 20 visiting locos operating alongside the home fleet." http://www.svrlive.com/kidderminster-tmd-appeal

    This is shaping up to be something pretty special especially if you like 50's, if i do go though it would be for the new bits, who doesnt like a bit of pen :)

    Omg 20 visiting locos and home fleet, will be an insane gala, not to be missed.


    But with that amount would everything run each day?

    i very much doubt every 50 will work every day, i suppose you will get different ones each day, just like last year

    Is this part of the 50 Alliances long held ambition to get every single surviving 50 up to Bridgnorth? What's the betting 47828 gets reunited with a certain set of plates too?

    SVR FB reports 20189 and 20205 as the final visitors.

    So 16 visitors plus the home fleet.
