Steam Gala Report 21 Oct 07 - Sheila Lobley
A good number of visitors turned up for the event, particularly those who wanted to photograph plenty of steam. Five engines were in steam: Beattie ran the passenger service in the morning, joined by Met 1 in the afternoon, topping and tailing the Mk I coaches. In the Down Yard, Gibraltar ran the Open Wagon in the morning, with Swanscombe and Rokeby topping and tailing with the Vintage Coaches; then they changed places, crossing over for Vintage Train passenger rides, while Gibraltar took the freight.
Mid-afternoon the visitors were treated to the 5 engine line up from the vantage point of the footbridge. The invisible engine in the picture is Rokeby - the one at the back, making all the steam!
