10th October  Autumn Gala

I don't really know where to start, so what about with the 14.40 from Loughborough. The train had been hauled by 70013 Oliver Cromwell and banked by 42085. As I stepped off the train at Quorn in the beautiful autumnal sunshine 48305 passed swiftly through the other platform with 'windcutters'. This sums up the event for me, some great locos, good weather and non-stop action, it was a truly superb gala. Locos in action were; SR 30777 Sir Lamiel; LMS Fairburn 4MT 42085 (visiting from the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway), 8F 48305; LNER O4 63601; WD 90733 (visiting from the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway); BR 7P 70013 Oliver Cromwell and finally 9F 92203 Black Prince (visiting from Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway).
