    From Alistair at SRPS:

    Evening all,

    We are delighted to announce that our guest loco is 66773 courtesy of our friends at GBRf. This will be the first time it has hauled a passenger train.

    The locos for the day are 27001, 37403, 37703, 47643 & 66773.

    PLEASE NOTE - we are now sold out on tickets for this event, due to changes made by the Scottish Government we are restricted to 200 people. This means all tickets sold are day rovers, if you have a ticket then you will be admitted to the Platform, if you do not you will not gain access.
    There will be no more tickets available on the day.
    All of our volunteers for this event are deeply saddened that the new restrictions in place have restricted ticket sales, but we hope you can all appreciate this.

    The timetable will follow in the next few hours.
    The usual caveats regarding loco availability and any further last minute changes by the Scottish Government will remain. On behalf of the SRPS we hope the day remains an enjoyable one, at least we are able to continue and deliver our first diesel day since December 2019!

    Thanks
    Alasdair and the Gala Organiser Cliff
