The gala is also planned to feature the triumphant return to traffic of both 50033 and D1015, and the CFPS working members who maintain 40106 have worked hard on both of their restorations too (and on the flip side, the 40 has also benefited from input from both Class 50 Alliance and Diesel Traction Group volunteers – it’s very much a team effort at 85D).

40106 has already completed over 500 miles of running this calendar month (including two emergency Thunderbird duties, for which it is always kept ready to roll) and bearing in mind both that and the 40’s level of forecast use over the colder months when other locos are tucked up, you could argue that we are lucky for it to get so much use at the Diesel Gala – so I hope that many of you will visit us to enjoy the green machine and vindicate that decision. Hope to see you there!
