Severn Valley Railway Autumn Gala

The Severn Valley Railway Autumn Gala, 2012

We certainly chose the best day to visit the Gala, the  Saturday, with autumnal sunshine all day long, even if it was a little cool at times.

It was good to see, and ride behind, the visiting locos, especially, with a Chasewater  background, the Webb coal tank numbered 7799, which started its life in preservation at the Hednesford headquarters of the Railway Preservation Society (West Midland Branch), while waiting to move on to Penrhyn Castle.
