The highlight of my year in 2014 was probably going to the Diesel Gala at the Severn Valley Railway so of course i couldn't wait for the 2015 edition. It was fantastic too with a great line-up of guest locomotives most notably the only Class 17 still in existence and a working Class 35 (there is already one on the SVR in the process of restoration but i've never seen one actually running before).
So i enjoyed some thrash a.k.a. a number of trips along the line (travelling behind a Class 08, 11, 14, 17 and 52). Of course i took a lot of photos too. Now to wait for the 2016 gala.
