    I think it's best described by the usual cover-all "Subject to availability".

    Gala timetables now available online.

    Presumably on the premise the 4 and the Terrier are fit to run

    I understand 31806 is meant to face Tenterden for a future charter

    76017 and 2678 face Bodiam

    Austerities and Hastings face Tenterden

    I know about Rolvenden but can you change trains at Northiam by using the foot crossing when trains cross ie arrive from Tenterden and return there? Or has this been stopped since we last visited some years ago?

    Northiam -No to foot crossing ( forgotten why)but you can use the level crossing. At the diesel gala some got off at Wittersham Road and waited for the next train from Northiam and photographed the arrival of it. Info provided by one of the signalmen.

    Good news re 32678.

    Does anyone know if the large KESR car park at Tenterden will be open before the 09.45 ceremony on Saturday please?

    And is there car parking at any other KESR stations?

    Thanks in advance.

    Car park at Tenterden should be open. Northiam also has a car park. Wittersham Road has some space to park cars. Beyond Rolvenden station, there is a lay by that is usually available.

    Been confirmed this evening that 76017 is back in one piece, and appears to be good to go.

    Carpark at Tenterden almost full at 9.30 and the station is very busy . A quick shot before joining the queue.
