    I'd say there is a good chance they will all be operational at the time of the gala. Which of those will actually be in operation of the days of the gala we will have to wait and see.

    Steam Railway mag also had an article about the possibility of 70000 attending the gala alongside 70013 for the much hoped for sight of two Britannias in steam together. I'm keeping everything crossed for that...

    Have the two been in steam together before? Sorry if it's a stupid question, my preservation steam knowledge really isn't great...

    I’ve seen a photo of them next to each other but they weren’t in steam

    Just surprised no one else has tried to get them together since the NNR attempted to back in 2013.
