It was an early start and a quick trip across the border into enemy territory on Friday 3rd of May for Day One of the KWVR's 'Diesel & Mixed Traffic' Gala, which this year was a four day event, with Day's one and two being diesel only, and days three and four being mixed traffic. The weather was much to my liking, being wet and gloomy for much of the day!:-)

Locos in service that day included: 20031, 25059, 37075, D32 and the DMU, and visiting locos included the HST prototype 41001, 50007 (50014), 50031, 31163 (97205) and 47727 'Edinburgh Castle'. It was certainly impressive to ride on the HST prototype, and just a pity that the DRS 88 wasn't able to make it.

Yet another very enjoyable event from the KWVR and well worth a visit, and my thanks to all the organisers, owners, drivers and staff who were involved in putting this on.
