    My footage of the gala on Sunday with a mixture of pure sun and blue skies to dark clouds with it being quite breezy as well. Enjoy.

    Steve,

    I had a bit of luck with both rods down. Your photo of 1501 coming through the bridge looks great.

    Three from me on the Friday, which included a very brief patch of early sun, and 1501 in a snow flurry. Also 1T57 IMGP0358.jpg IMGP0380.jpg IMGP0410.jpg IMGP0503.jpg on the Saturday.

    Particular thanks to the workshop staff for the superb display of boiler repairs. This alone was worth the ticket price.

    I attended on the Saturday afternoon and the Sunday of the event, had a very enjoyable time despite the rain on Saturday and the high winds on Sunday. All locomotives were putting in some great performances, a credit to the crews and the guys at Ropley who work so hard (even more so in previous weeks no doubt!) to keep them running. The fact that two freight sets were available for use commends the continued work of the MHR Wagon Group, and while I'm on the subject, it was nice to see the yellow cement hopper in the dock at Medstead - haven't seen that in a while! My video and a set of photos from the weekend are below: the first two are from Saturday, while the remainder are from Sunday. With thanks again to all of the MHR volunteers who made this weekend possible.
