Always popular with our faithful customers another Shunter Hunter Gala, with a mixed bag of diverse traction.
We are hoping to debut either D2289 or D2229, depending on our ever-present workload. There are also prospects of 09001 coming back into the pool of working locos. We will have to see how things develop.
Barring any unforeseen difficulties, at least eight shunters will be working each day of the Gala.
These will be selected from the following;
D2953, D2854, D2139, 03113, 03099, D2205, D2284, D2587, D2420, 07001, PWM654, D9525 and “Bigga” our industrial loco, with 08016 acting as the Thunderbird Loco.
Nearer the weekend we will be announcing a definitive list of locos working.
Please note as far as possible all the locos chosen to work will work both days, in pairs or singly, topping and tailing on our brakevans.
