    I would think so. They are not usually available until about a week or two before the event. You could always phone one of the shops to find out, or if you order one online it will be dispatched as soon as it is available.

    As this Gala is now just a month away, are we any closer to the identity of the mystery locomotive being revealed?

    Hoping it is 3205 from South Devon.

    Although I’m currently watching LOTR: return of the king... if it’s 6023 it would be the gala of the year

    Public timetable available but is the same for all 4 days. Not sure if this a mistake or new approach to the WSR gala.
