    Just to be clear it has been confirmed that they will be available from the booking offices shortly. The reason I am mentioning this is because I asked the same question for someone else who was asking me before I noticed your posts but yes the tickets will be available at the discounted price.

    Will anyone be able to share a working time table? I know it's cheeky, but... I'm cheeky?

    Great; thanks. I note that the SVR page in question has now been edited to change the wording I queried, so everything seems to be looking good. Looks pretty promising for a nice gala next month.

    May look at getting over to the SVR on the Saturday for this event. Haven't been to a Spring Gala since 2012 so think it's time to put that right.

    A post from the SVR official FB page suggests the timetable will be available soon and as a taster, 6990 will be on the first train on Friday.

    Having received the times for my TTI turn on sunday today, I assume the public timetable will appear next week at some point.

    Will members get a discount at this gala? I'm sure I did last year but can't remember which gala it was.

    Yes, members pay child rates on galas now as per normal days (it was changed to this a couple of years ago).

    Thanks for your reply. I'll be there for the Friday and Saturday so more I can spend more of my pension money on tea, breakfasts and bacon butties.
    Accomodation booked and looking forward to spending a couple of days up and down the line on the little un's (locals).

    Does anybody know which loco is rostered for the Severn Valley Limited on 20th March please? This service is omitted from the gala timetable, but is shown, dep Kidderminster 12.55p.m., on the SVR's website here:

    I'd have a guess that 43106 is on the 1255 as she working two trips from Bridgnorth but none the other way in the public timetable. Not sure about the return working, possibly 1501?

    There's not generally a public WTT published for the Spring event, though it might become available on SVR live. The public timetable does show loco allocations though.

    Looking forward to this one, we have got accommodation booked in Kidderminster Friday & Saturday night and travel tickets for Friday & Saturday. I know its already been asked but any chance of a WTT being available? I much prefer planning my days from them as I like to know the non-passenger local times and platform allocations in advance. Many thanks!

    Apologies if this has been asked already, how are the Auto trains being operated? Auto+Loco+Auto or Loco+Auto+Auto? If the latter, are they running in full auto mode or running round?

    Generally auto+loco+auto but I'd need to double check for all of it.

    Pictures on FB show that 6430 left Llangollen this afternoon.

    The advance weather forecast indicates it might fairly ok but then it's probably wrong :rolleyes:
