    ESR's Spring gala will be over the weekend of 23/24 March 2019.
    46447, 5637 and 1719 'Lady Nan' should all be in operation subject to the usual caveats. Note that this will be 5637's final spring gala before she is withdrawn for overhaul. The shed and workshop gallery will be open as usual from where the rapid progress on 5239's overhaul can be seen. It will also be the first time you'll be able to see 'under the bridge' towards Merehead in 4 years.

    Video from the gala. As mentioned upthread the cutting back really has made a difference, many of these shots would have been much shorter/impossible had this work not been done. Lineside shots taken with PTS and permission etc.
