Churnet Valley Railway Steam Gala

Sunday 4th February 2018.

Barry Knapper's picture of the Western Tank near Consall illustrates our Churnet Valley Railway Steam Gala today on its last day in service before its boiler ticket expires. It'll be on a low loader this week back to the Dartmouth Steam Railway where it is resident, but I don't know when it'll get fettled.
It was GW green when it arrived which is not prototypical, and was re-painted into correct unlined black livery at Cheddleton when it arrived at CVR late last year.
Barry also stopped by the 'box where I was rostered signalman for the day, and snapped me!
