    I went over to the ELR today for the first day of the the 3 day diesel gala

    Visiting locos were D821 Greyhound from the SVR and 20305 & 37059 (both courtesy of Harry Needle Railroad Company).

    Added bonus for some reason D821 Greyhound came off the passenger service at Ramsbottom and was added to the front of the brake van ride service with D832 Onslaught
    I overheard someone saying this was the first time since 1969 that 2 BR Blue liveried Warships have worked as a double header
