Thank you very much to all of you who attended our diesel gala last weekend. The event was a real success, as usual Friday was the quieter day but overall we welcomed a number of customers to the railway and to our shed at Williton to have a look around. No incidents to report, all locos worked well over all three days of the event with no casualties.
We have a selection of photos below First selection from Ian Robins.
