A later than usual start for me this year, it's not often we're well into March before I attend an event there. This one happened to be Day 3 of the Spring Steam Gala, which featured the following locos: 52322, 13065, 45407, 45212, 48624, 76084 and 34092. The last time I saw 48624 it was in a Crimson livery and had just come into service after a 29 year long restoration job, but this was the first time I'd seen it in black. Personally I liked the Crimson better, but at least the black paint job will stop the purists from moaning now!:-)

A very enjoyable event, and suitably miserable weather on the day I was there, which pleased me no end, can't be doing with all that awful sunshine nonsense, this is East Lancashire after all!
