    Its not on the website though and it was updated on 3rd August. Posters are obviously designed well before the event to allow printing time. It's not confirmed yet, but is likely to be attending. Up to date info is available on the webpage.

    Booked my ticket today & very much looking forward to this as usual. I hope someone has ordered the weather, from what I recall the last 2-3 Gala's have had decent weather.

    5337 to be dressed up as 45156 for the event, complete with 'Ayrshire Yeomanry' plates and everything.

    Maybe someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but is 44767's tender in the yard? Only i recall seeing a lined out, riveted Stanier tender in a recent picture, with no loco attached. There for 44767 after repairs? Would be interesting if it turns out to be part of 5337's costume

    Yes that is 44767's tender and it's not part of 45337 costume, 44767 is in the shed having major repairs!

    NNR website has listed 5619 and the J15 as running in recent days, will either be reassigned to the gala roster?

    5619 was already revealed as running by the gala organiser on facebook. She wasn't originally going to attend but the plans changed.

    Strange that, the nameplates and numbering only arrived in the back of a van yesterday, and were only put on the loco yesterday. The announcement was said with tongue and cheek Kieran.
