    The line "Visiting heritage and modern diesel locomotives in action and on display" might give a clue to what else is expected to be visiting.
    The Diesel shed will hopefully be having its grand opening and will be open to the public on the Saturday and Sunday (the later is not part of the diesel gala, but is a timetable C).

    Woohoo! The last time that I went to a gala with more than one wagon was back in July 1998 on the ELR.

    2 choppers, a 31, a 33, a 45, a 46, 3 Hoovers, 2 Westerns, a 55 and a 66 with the possibility of more visitors being announced and the outside possibility of the 14 putting in an appearance. It's going to be the gala of the century!

    The SVR FB reckons we are now up to 18 visiting locos...
    And there may well be more to come as the Official FB page used the phrase:

    Our final visiting heritage locomotive will be Class 40 No. D213 'Andania'...

    So maybe something modern...
