    The Spring Gala at the ESR for 2020 is scheduled for 21/22 March. Potentially 4555, 5239, 5637, 46447 and 1719 'Lady Nan' could all be in action subject to 4555's overhaul being completed and the DSR not requiring 5239. The shed and workshop viewing area should be also open as usual where progress on the start of 4110's restoration should be visible.

    The link in post #1 has been updated to confirm that 4555, 5239, 5637, 46447 and 1719 are all expected to attend. This will be the first time 4555 has visited Cranmore since it was shedded at Westbury in BR days. The timetable has also been posted.

    I wonder if 4 passenger trips are enough tbh. I'm sure they will pull quite a crowd with a line up like that, and with no WSR or SVR gala in March either.

    4555 first trains in 13 years.
    First time 5239 has been away from the Dartmouth Railway in preservation.
    Final appearance of 5637 at the ESR.

    This has the potential to be a really good gala. It's a shame that the last train departs from Cranmore at 15:55. <BJ>
