GCR Winter Gala - 2011 1/8

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 No 1450 was built in 1935 and spent most of its life at Oxford before being withdrawn from Exmouth in 1965.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.

Lovely shot with all that billowing smoke!

Unusual wheel configuration, Brian...I cannot recall seeing a 0-4-2 before this fine shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, This. Little engine is very popular and is taken all over the country to the different preserved railways.

une vieille dame bruyante et salissante............mais qu'elle est belle !
Brian Walbey: Thanks remla, it is a very popular little engine.
i hope the weather is as nice for you as it is here at the moment.
This is a dear little engine Brian, I wonder where it would have been seen in times gone by?
Brian Walbey: Well it certainly travels all over the country nowadays Stanley to galas on all the preserved railways.
I'd like this engine
Brian Walbey: Yes quite a sweet little thing isn't it.
A class of engine I have always liked Brian, they seem just right when attached to an autotrain. Sure looks good here.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les. I of course wasn't familiar with these being from the east of England.
