    Although I was only able to be there on the Sunday afternoon, I still managed to take far too many pictures! I've made a start on editing them and the first few are now in this album on my Flickr site:

    Hope they're of interest.

    It sure did. Couldn`t get out of the station road due a to legally parked 4x4 outside The Bell. Bringing Alresford to a complete stand.
    I waited for 20 minutes then did a 3 point turn to park somewhere else.
    Possibly 1000 not the best time to try to leave?
    34053 also left this morning.

    They were all ready to go first thing, having been loaded last night, but the Police apparently wouldn't let the low loaders go until 10am....

    Hope they did not get caught up in the M3 fiasco.

    34081 was unloaded at Wansford around 19:00. Tender was awaiting unloading but haven't heard anything more so far.

    Well, it's taken long enough, but I've finally finished editing my footage from the End of Southern Steam gala at the Mid Hants. Skip to 20:05 for my video... locomotives featured are 34052, 34053, 34081, 80078 and 35006 (including the 8 coach mega train on the Friday).
