MHR The Great Spring Steam Gala half-day visit on 23rd Friday and full-day visit on 25th Sunday with Hid. The weather over the Gala weekend was great and the temperature went up about 20 degrees (a bit too hot to see steam exhaust though...). We had a guest engine from the Swanage Railway, Ex-LSWR 0-4-4T M7 #30053 [#53]. Due to a minor incident happened on Saturday afternoon, the loco allocation on Sunday was still slightly disturbed. Hid and I, however, enjoyed to see great performances of all engines on a very nice and hot spring day (including a pub lunch & ice cream at Alresford).
