It was back to the ELR on Sun day 18th of February for what was billed as the 'Spring' Diesel Gala, though it didn't feel very much like Spring and 'Winter' Diesel Gala might have been more appropriate. At any rate, the conditions were to my liking - gloomy and cloudy, in other words, no battles with that low Sun and burned out skies! As per usual at an ELR diesel event there were a great selection of loud and heavy locos in action, and of course, Class 14 'Ernest', who was sporting a new and shiny black livery for the first time. Below is a selection of shots from the day to at least give you a flavour of what Day 2 of the event was like. My thanks to the organisers at the ELR Diesel Group for again putting out such a mighty fleet at a time of the year when very little else of interest is going on.

Locos taking part in the Gala (though not all seen and photographed by me this time) included: 45108, 37109, 50015, D9537, 40106, 40145, D9531, 33109, D7629, D832 and a DMU operating a shuttle service between Bury and Ramsbottom.
