A visit to the WSR for the Spring Steam Gala on Thursday 22nd, Friday 23rd, and a short time on Saturday 24th March 2012. The star guest was 70000 'Britannia', and my last chance to see 6024 'King Edward I' before it is withdrawn for overhaul.
Continuous sunshine and record temperatures for March of nearly 20degC meant little chance of exhaust. 7828, 6960, 1450, 88, 3850, 9351, 80072 and 5553 also in action. The last photo is of 6201 'Princess Elizabeth' passing Ashchurch, which I took on the homeward journey. Acker Bilk does the clarinet blowing with the slideshow.
