This Steam Gala was run over two weekends of the schools half term break together with a service during weekdays and has featured Drummond 1897 design M7 looking very smart in its BR black livery and on loan from The Swanage Railway together with resident engine Collet 3205, L92 a former GWR 57xx pannier owned by The Worcester Locomotive Society and the Single Bubble Car W55000 dating from 1958.
Also taking part were D2246 A Drewry 0-6-0 b.h.p.204 Diesel Mechanical Shunter and D3721 a Diesel Electric shunter from a Class of over 1000 built from 1953. Our Chairman Tony Wright was active through out the day as Guard and Signalman.
With a lot of sunny weather everyone that I spoke to really enjoyed the day, a break from the usual routine.
Many Thanks to all concerned. Roger Winnen
