The Gala Plannign Team are pleased to confirm the last loco we have agreed for the line up for our big Autumn Gala. This is Swanage Railway based (owned by Southern Locomotives Limited) BR Std 4 Tank No. 80104. These locos were often seen on “cross country” type trains in various parts of the country so fits our theme quite well.
