Summer Gala
Saturday 24th July 2004

We certainly picked the best day regarding the weather for my first visit to the GC this year.
Also tried some new vantage points this time including the ever popular 'Kinchley Lane Bridge'! we must have walked miles
The GC isn't an easy line to access without a photographic pass, but anyway we got some reasonable shots!
Locomotives in action were:- 45305 LMS Black Five .... 4141 GWR 2-6-2T .... 63601 LNER 04
48305 LMS 8F (masquerading as 48182) .... Class 101 2 car Metro Cammel DMU.
