The gala was loosely based on Banbury and featured 5 locomotives from the GWR, and 1 each from LNER, LMS and SR. This series is just a selection of my shots on 29th.January, a longer slideshow of these and other images can be found on my Flickr site here
GWR 14XX class No.1450 runs light on its way to Rothley to pick up a local freight bound for Loughborough.
Although looking like a 19th century design, these locomotives put in useful service all over the GWR in charge of local passenger and freight services. No 1450 was built in 1935 and spent most of its life at Oxford before being withdrawn from Exmouth in 1965.
If you looked at my posting yesterday you will have seen that I will be "giving away" my daughter in marriage at 1.30pm.this afternoon, a happy occasion for all the family.
