50s, 52s and (do they have a 43?) If a perfect gala for me.
They’ve got D821 the Warship (class 42). And what a fine machine it is.
Maybe we should break conversation about the events of the gala, locos, etc., into a different thread? (Purely because this thread is called "Why have SVR put an october diesel gala on ?" and not "SVR October Diesel Gal 2019 Information"
Just a thought.
Probably not worth having another thread on it.
You could edit the title to SVR diesel gala though as I think everything else has probably been said now.
Oh OK. I don't have the ability to edit the thread title - the admins or the OP will have to do that!
Sorry Peter. I thought you’d started this but it was Edders.
Wish more railways would do more diesel galas, even if home fleets.
Same. I think it may be down to the fact that more people ("normals", as they are known) are more interested in steam, either because they remember it, or "it's a train!".
For many people, a diesel is a box on wheels.
I hope everyone enjoys themselves at the SVR.
Just one request. As a member of the SVR C & W dept who knows how much hard work goes into restoring them, please treat the railway's coaches with respect, particularly the pre-nationalisation ones.
That means no feel on the seats, sitting on tables or kneeling on tables in order to hang out of windows. I've seen diesel enthusiast do it. So please don't. And close the doors and droplights carefully. They're old and easily damaged.
A very important message - I don't volunteer at any heritage line (yet!), but I would hate it if my hard work was ruined by a minority of people who were just disrespectful towards it.
