    Can I just say sir, I think the shot of 35006 passing 34058 is absolutely stunning - a brilliant photo!

    A fantastic couple of weekends, to all of those on the Mid Hants and elsewhere who were involved and worked so hard to make everything happen - thank you for a brilliant event and a fitting commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the end of Southern steam in '67.

    Here's my offerings from a fantastic Gala. Thanks to everyone who made this possible! Nice to ride behind 35006 for the first time as well! Coverage across all five days.

    Enjoy!

    I wouldn't let the 34081 crew hear you say that or you may have to go into hiding. :)
    Anyway, an end of Southern steam gala should have had the locos so grimy you couldn't tell what colour they were. ;)
