I've been visiting the MHR since 2001 but it took near 12 years to finally do one of their steam galas! The original lineup didn't go quite to plan when both 777 'Sir Lamiel' & S15 No. 825 were withdrawn. The lineup instead consisted of:

Visiting:

GWR Mogul No. 5322 - Visiting from Didcot instead of 777 'Sir Lamiel'
SR Unmodified Battle of Britain No. 34051 'Winston Churchill' - on static display at Alresford

Resident:

Unmodified West Country No. 34007 'Wadebridge'
SR V (Schools) No. 925 'Cheltenham' - making her gala debut
SR LN No. 850 'Lord Nelson'
SR U Class No. 31806
9F No. 92212
LMS Black 5 No. 45379 - running instead of 825

Also on display was sole surviving N Class No. 1874 in her recently applied southern black livery.
