First of all. Please see My Welcome message on the Home page concerning the Shopping Experience pages on this website!.

I must admit I did Um and Rrr about attending this gala as the Standard 5 which was steaming for the first time in 50 years had had a mishap by way of its brakes failing and hitting the buffer stops at Leicester North on the Thursday and consequently withdrawn from the event.
The only other loco I had not photographed was the Battle of Britain 4-6-2 Pacific '92 Squadron'
As it happened I made a bit of a boo boo by choosing the Swithland siding area as my location. Although there was a lot of things going on there was very little chance of seeing the locos working and running at any pace because of all the shunting being done at Rothley and Swithland in the sidings. I really should have known better!
