    Interestingly 80097 no longer appears in the timetable for Saturday, it just says "steam". Wasn't in the Sunday line-up

    I notice that 47298 is now the rostered loco on the ELR tomorrow - let's hope it's on the diagram that was originally shown for 80097 tomorrow.

    Anyone know if the Coal Tank has arrived and which way it's facing?
    Thanks.

    The Jinty failed on the last service train yesterday. GW 5643 is on the first "Steam" working today.

    Absolutely excellent Gala. Like the GCR Working Railway Gala in March, as good as any event I've ever been to. Thanks to all who made it happen
    I've attached a few of my photos, I was attempting to make the scenes as timeless as I could.
