With the exception of the failure of J11 5317, the new year cracker gala was a success. All engines that made it worked superbly! Unfortunately, due to the requirement of a full pullman set, and with the failure of Car 64, the mixed teak and pullman set never occured.
A great way to kick start to the new year, featuring three recently returned to service locomotives, 34006 Bude, Austerity tank 3795 Fleur, and D16/3 8825. Also in steam for the gala will be Terrier 3 Bodiam, WD75105 Walkden, and J11 5317.
Service train sets that will be running include a mixed Teak and Pullman service, a full pullman service, suburban set, and branchline set. A freight set will also run, hauled by 3795. A double header will arranged with the two austerity tanks, and also Bodiam and Fleur.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
