*****GALA WEEKEND 11TH AND 12TH JUNE 2005*****

The 2004 gala weekend took place on the 12th and 13th of June and was as usual a grand success. Visiting engines took the most service trains whilst a couple of the home fleet were steamed towards the end of both days. Saturdays Locomotives suffered a light rain shower in the afternoon but apart from that the weather was kind to us with glorious sunshine beating down on sunday, but cold over night when the model railway lads stayed over in the exhibition tent!

The competitoin awards went to

Best Unfinished Locomotive went to David Batty for his South African 4-8-2 Tender locomotive. Chassis of both the locomotive and tender were judged

Best Finished Locomotive went to Stewart Merton for his 3 1/2" gauge LMS, Fowler 4F 0-6-0 tender locomotive

Best non Locomotive went to Bernard Walker for his collection of air powered stationary engines.

All the winners were presented with their prizes by the Societys President Colin Bradley.( See Photos)
