ELR Summer Steam Gala - 2007


elrsummer2007020.jpg

23/06/2007 - A cloudy Saturday and its the ELR Summer steam gala, and as is not uncommon, there are the usual setbacks to this gala. The failure of 30587 which was in light steam only at Bury meant cancelled freight trains as other locos took its place. Some nice engines where put together but with half the locomotives facing in the opposite direction to normal running, this made good photographic opportunities fairly hard to come by.
Trains running - 3440, 5643, 45407, 5690, 76079 & 47324.
Still well worth the visit!
