Loco's from the GCR fleet were used for this gala along with visiting locos No 8624 the red 8f and GW Small Prairie No 5542. Unfortunately the loco I wanted to see 48305, was withdrawn with fire grate problems after Saturdays appearance for fear of causing lineside fires.
The replacement was a class 47 Diesel Sparrowhawk. The DMU ran shuttles from Loughborough to Quorn with Just one run to Rothley.

Thanks Rick for good clear pictures,looked perfect weather, due to family commitments and an appointment in Coventry I was unable to get to rail by mail.Had I made it, I would have been very dissapointed as you I'm sure you were with 48305 out of service.
48305 is a favourite of mine from BR days.
