56006 completes successful ELR gala

Just a quick photo and a few words, after what has been a very tiring but very satisfying weekend for the team which provided support for 56006 during the weekend gala.

Before 56006 got to haul her first train on Saturday, it was called upon to shunt a failed 47765 to the shed for repairs. Our grid then took up the planned duty and completed all workings over the weekend without any problems.

The hard work put in by everyone during recent weeks shouldn’t be underestimated and often went beyond what could be reasonably expected of our volunteers. The attached photograph was taken just before 56006 finished the weekends duties and retired to Bury Baron Street shed. Well done guys, the grins say it all really.
