Had a very good day at the gala today, riding the trains from 9 'til 5.30. I was on both the trains that Foxcote worked, the second one definitely being the better. On the first run it looked like one of the drain cocks was stuck open and the loco just couldn't make enough steam to get up the 1:49. Once the S15 had helped it to Goathland it carried on by itself to Pickering but returned on the rear of 92214's train. On the second run it romped up the bank, blowing off on the way up too. The delay did have an effect on the timetable and delayed everything by at least 30mins, more by the time I left but nobody seemed to mind. I'd like to go back again tomorrow but I'm not allowed another day! Definitely worth the £20 day rover ticket as it's one of the only places you can actually hear big locos working properly. As for the weather, it was extremely hot all day but it didn't seem to have any effect on the locos, they were all working hard.
