Home / Railway Gallery / Standard Gauge Heritage Railways / East Lancashire Railway / ELR 2018 / ELR Autumn Steam Gala - 19th of October 2018 [54]

Friday 19th of October 2018 saw me over at the East Lancashire Railway again, this time for Day One of the annual Autumn Steam Gala. Locos appearing included visitors: GWR 4270, GWR 2857 and LMS 6233 "Duchess of Sutherland" from the Princess Royal Class Locomotive Trust, and looking quite magnificent in its Crimson livery (last time I saw it she was in green). Locos from the home fleet included: L&Y 52322, Standard 4 Tank 80080, West Country Pacific 34092 'City of Wells', and the venerable 0-6-0 Tank engine 'Gothenburg' 32.

There was quite a good turnout on this fine day, and the trains were very busy, adding the extra day on Fridays has been a very good idea, and it now allows me to go and still have the rest of the weekend free for other events. My thanks to all the staff and volunteers involved in putting on the event.
