    Autumn Steam Gala – Thurs 1st to Sun 4th October 2020
    Our Autumn Steam Gala takes place from 1st to 4th October 2020, with a busy passenger service on Thursday, stepping up a gear on Friday with the addition of freight trains, and on Saturday and Sunday a very intensive timetable indeed, including a very frequent passenger service with goods trains and Travelling Post Office demonstrations. An event not to missed!

    Up to 9 locomotives in steam!

    Further details will be published here closer to the event.

    If this ends up being the only steam gala of the year, it has potential to be rather busy! Still, I'm up for it if the railway is! :)

    Quite. I wonder how social distancing is going to be maintained?

    The GCR FB page has a comment on it stating that a decision on whether the October Gala will go ahead will be made in mid-August......
