The SVR Autumn Gala is of course one of the must do events of the railway calendar. With a variety of steam locomotives running all day and night between Friday through to Sunday featuring both freight & passenger. The 2013 gala had a notable southern theme.
These shots are from day 2 (which had much better weather) to the final day which had minimal shots due to the weather.
