ELR Steam Gala 2012


With 7 locos in steam over the gala weekend, we were treated to plenty of spectacular action. Chris Beet’s little Peckett on freight duty, made a welcome sight between the large locos 3 train running. Locos were mixed and matched to give good photo opportunities. This lead to one or two unusual pairings, like the ‘Duke’ piloting ‘Lord Nelson’, which would have been highly unlikely in steam days. Unless you know different!
