    Nice one Alan, thanks, have a great weekend, fingers crossed for the weather, doesn't look too bad. Off to Statfold Sunday, a little narrow minded :D !

    How long will the rakes be? They've taken delivery of 4 coaches from West Coast for the gala.

    Some shots from Friday and Saturday, finished early on the latter as it started the usual (rain!) and the light crashed.

    I've never been to a gala with so many "normals". It would seem that "legends" attract them. I'm sick of being asked whether I'm a train spotter. As long as the railway's making money, I guess.

    I’ve never been to a gala where everyone gets shouted at on the station at bury to move six foot from the platform edge as a train is approaching at 5mph and has a gobby security guard thinking he’s the dogs ******** really pissed me off and put me off going again

    Was the same at Ramsbottom. Not sure whether it was because the platform was quite slippy due to the weather.
