D6575 to visit GWR Diesel Gala. 6/7/16
We are pleased to report arrangements for D6575 to visit the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire’s diesel gala
at the end of July (19th/30th/31st) are now well advanced.
Allelys heavy haulage has been booked to collect the loco from Bishops Lydeard on Monday 25th July. The
loco will then have a run up the motorway to the GWR arriving in good time to work the following weekend.
The 33 will be then roaded back to Bishops Lydeard after the event on 1st August. Once back at Bishops
Lydeard the loco is to be refuelled to then be ready to support the Association Rally the following weekend
(5th-7th August) so some buy times ahead for the Crompton at the end of the month!
D9526 will get some extra running over the weekend that the Crompton is away covering the diesel diagram.
The loco is seen approaching Crowcombe with the Diesel Driver Experience course a couple of weeks ago by
