    Just had a look for an update on this gala on the site. Excellent news that 2 Black fives the choice of Visiting Loco's this year as they're my favourite out of LMS engines. It's a decade since i last saw George stephenson in steam. Will the day rover fares be the same price as they usually are at galas?

    I cannot wait for this now. The Worth Valley hills will be reverberating to the bark of two of Stanier's finest. Congratulations and many thanks to the KWVR planning team for producing such a wonderful line-up.

    Thanks Julian, I'm looking forward to my Saturday visit, and £17 is excellent value for a day ticket. I couldn't see the timetables, are they still to come?

    As to whether it carries nameplates I can not answer, recently at other Railways it hasnt, however that is up to the owner of the Locomotive.

    New for this gala! Hot food aboard our Restaurant Car, this will be housed in our Exhibition shed at Oxenhope. Small Breakfast (1 x Sausage, Bacon, Egg, toast, Hash Brown, Tomato or Mushroom and beans) £3.50, Large Breakfast - Double the first portion at £5 (2 x Sausage, Bacon, Egg, toast, Hash Brown, Tomato or Mushroom and beans)

    Afternoon meals such as Steak & Kidney pie, Sausage in onions and a veg option (all with seasonal veg) £5.50 - as well as the usual buffets and Real Ale bar cars.

    The food sounds excellent! I know it's a long way off, but any chance of the same being done for the diesel gala? :) A nice hot breakfast would certainly make the camping more bearable!

    Breakfast sounds excellent value. Not sure that my doctor would approve of the cholesterol content, but once in a while won't hurt!
