Home / Railway Gallery / Standard Gauge Heritage Railways / East Lancashire Railway / ELR 2018 / ELR Autumn Diesel Gala - 23rd of September 2018 [56]

The East Lancashire Railway must have one of the largest collections of big diesel locos in the country, and you can always rely on the ELR Diesel Group to put on good events, and this one was no exception. Many of the Home Fleet were out this time, plus one visiting Class 56 (56006) courtesy of the Class 56 Group, which was my main reason for attending. I've seen and photographed most of the Home Fleet many times, but it's always nice to see a 'new' face, and it was worth going just to get a few shots of this Romanian built loco.

The weather was a bit mixed, with sunshine at times, followed by a nice hail shower, which caught me out in the open, and was well and truly bouncing off my head, not that I minded though, as regular visitors to this site will know that I like a bit of crap weather, and it couldn't do much harm to me anyway as where there is no sense there is definitely no feeling!:-)

My thanks to the organisers and staff and loco owners for putting on this event, which certainly gave me an enjoyable afternoon.
