    The gentleman in the orange hi-viz and the one next to him with the cloth cap were the ones I spoke to. The former is connected to 70014 and the Treetops Light Railway and the latter 70047 and the Great Cockcrow Railway.

    I think it's a nice touch having the miniatures as well - makes the event that bit more special. I heard a rumour that there might be a more extensive 5" gauge ground set-up at Sheffield Park for next year's Model Railway weekend.

    Looking forward to photos / videos of the 12 coach train tomorrow. Mind you, looking forward to Monday even more :D

    Regards,

    Dan

    My video from the Friday of the gala, some challenging conditions to say the least!

    My video and a few photos from Sunday, poor weather and a problem with a video camera didn't help things but this is what I managed to get. Thanks to all involved with the organisation of locomotives, forming up the coaching stock into matching rakes, having "Mayflower" face South, and the imaginative timetable; the 12 coach banked train was a great idea and one I hope gets replicated at future events!
