    Last Sunday, we paid a visit to the autumn steam gala at Barrowhill Roundhouse.

    It was quite a show, with as many as five steam locos moving at a time!

    Here is a GWR 2-6-2T on the turntable.

    Excellent stuff!

    I really should get there some time, they have a reputation for a lot of great preserved diesels as well. [​IMG]

    Martyn, it is well worth a visit. It is a working steam and diesel depot, with lots of work going on to get diesels to main line running condition. The new maintenance shed allows a good clean area for maintenance and repainting.
