A scene from the recent Gala at the Gloucester and Warwickshire Railway. A scene full of activity as nn the left GWR 2-6-2 tank engine No 5542 has just arrived with the Auto Train from Toddington. In the centre, BR(WR) Modified Hall Class No 7903 Formarke Hall has the signal to pull away with a freight train. On the right in the bay platform is BR 9F No 92203 which is having her nameplates - Black Prince refitted in for a rededication ceremony to celebrate 40 years since she was purchased by her owned David Sheppard from British Railways at the end of Steam.
