GBRF gala (No thanks to the weather)
Went to the GBRF diesel gala on the Bluebell today. Very nice selection of locos plus the Bluebells own 09 doing brakevan/observation coach trips.
The weather to be frank was appalling but plenty of people about despite the April showers.
Here are the photos
To show the 09 was rather busy then the brakevan special
And so returned to Horstead Keynes on the 4TC set which is in a rather peculiar teak imitation livery. I did take a photo with the camera so will post along with Colas 47 that was also brought in.
Later on I went back to Sheffield Park but there was time for this in the buffet.
So back to Sheffield Park behind 2x class 20 & the 73 although on its arrival at Horstead before I boarded this train was brought in by the 66 & 73 combination from earlier.
And as I could, got out at Kingscote for a scout round whilst waiting for the down train to arrive.
Thank you GBRF and of course the Bluebell for hosting the gala 👍😀
