Stanier class 8F 2-8-0 48305 comes forward at Loughborough Station on the Great Central Railway, to haul the awaiting stock, on 30 September 2007.

Standard class 9F 2-10-0 92203 Black Prince, at Loughborough, on the Great Central Railway. Owned and driven by famous wildlife artist David Shepherd, seen here on the footplate, one of three visiting guest locomotives for the three day steam gala, on 9 October 2009.

Super power! Class 9F 92203 "Black Prince" and US class S160 2-8-0 5197 attack the incline with a 2000 ton loaded freight, at Merehead Sidings, on 21 June 2008.  As part of a joint open weekend with the East Somerset Railway. Much barking!

     

A noble train! Stanier Princess Royal Pacific 6201 Princess Elizabeth, and Riddles prototype Pacific 71000 Duke of Gloucester provide about 80,000 lbs of tractive effort; seen here at Bury Bolton Street Station on the East Lancs Railway on 21 January 2008.

Towards the end of a steam gala day, the locomotives gather in the station at Ropley,

on the Watercress Railway, ready to enter the yard for servicing for the next day,

and to over-night. 13 September 2008.

 

 

 

 

It could be a classic scene from 50 or more years ago... The end of a steam gala day at the Watercress Railway, and the engines are serviced, or being serviced,

ready for the final day of the gala. 13 September 2008.

 

 

 

 

We were lucky enough to be at Ropley on the Watercress Railway on 7 June 2007, when Gresley A4 Pacific 60019 Bittern moved under its own power for the first time in 44 years, following a long restoration.
