Watercress Line gala fields varied motive power

THE Mid-Hants Railway’s June 1-3 diesel gala featured three visiting locos: Class 20s Nos. 20001 and D8059 and Class 26 No. 26043.

Also in operation were current residents Class 47 No. 47579 James Nightall G.C. and Class 33202 Dennis G. Robinson.

Unfortunately, Class 50 No. 50027 Lion, which had been repainted on one side, failed during the event.

Much-travelled Class 26 No. 26043, visiting from the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway, is seen approaching Ropley with the 12.00 shuttle from Alresford on June 3.
