Day 1 of our Home Fleet Gala weekend saw many of our locomotives and railcars in service, with surprisingly more people coming to sample our railway than expected.
With so many people concentrating on running the gala, little else was achieved. A battery cell was changed on 51188 to allow that to return to traffic and the embankment was weeded.
Many thanks to all involved, it really does take a lot of effort to put on gala days so if you are available come and have a ride tomorrow!
