The Great Central Railway annual 1960's Themed gala with visiting Turkish liveried 8f No 45160 and GW tank 1450 from the Gloucester and Warwickshire railway, Black5 45305 and Black GWR freight loco No 3850. I decided to go on the Friday as the weather forecast was non to good for Saturday. The only loco's I missed would have been the Red 8f and a couple of diesels which to be honest I was not really that bothered about!
