Christmas Diesel Day

With the success of the Diesel Gala still fresh in the mind we looked forward to the next big event which would be the return of the annual Christmas Diesel day on 27th December. A chance to take a break from repeats on television (and the in-laws), pack some of those turkey sandwiches and head to the Cotswolds for some wintery diesel action. Unfortunately, but understandably, the event had to be cancelled as there is currently no means of steam heating in the Diesel department. With 47105 under a 5 year overhaul and 37248's new steam generator not ready for action the onus fell to the boiler coach. Unfortunately the timescale to have the boiler coach operational proved unobtainable. Instead the GWSR has announced the Christmas Cracker Steam Gala will now become a mixed traction event over the 29th and 30th December so put the dates in your diary and look forward to nice warm trains and some diesel action
