    Great day at the DFR. I think it must be the first time I've gone there in a long time and never seen any of the loco running in service before! I was a little sceptical of this event after the success of the gala last year with the mainline guest engines but the three Austeries put on a good show! Videos below -

    My video and a few shots from an enjoyable day at the gala! Interesting how each of the locos all make a different sound!

    A set of images from the final day of the gala can now be seen on my Zenfolio website at: - http://mickrogers.zenfolio.com/p113545800
    The only disappointment of the day was the failure of no. 75008 Swiftsure, meaning that the triple headed working was only a double-header.
