East Lancs gala, February 2017

 

Despite the on shed failure of 40135 and Rawtenstall failure of 33109 this was a classic gala. "Bucketloads" of thrash, soche crowds,  few "bellowing" brats, a classic gala day on the East Lancs.

18021740145n31webr.jpg This fine machine in 40145 was worked hard all day she sounded superb. Shes seen arriving at a damp Ramsbottom with the 1035 Heywood - Rawtenstall.

 

18021737109webr.jpg 37109 was driven hard on the short 1044 ex Bury shuttle turn,73001 was tailing.

18021745108webr.jpg Its not often at galas that you hear Peaks like 45108 being worked hard, 45108 sounded good leaving Ramsbottom, very good!
