Ok, but in return you all have to say what you think should be run in the gala, regarding Double Headers and locos with certain sets of stock.

I have Kenny's votes. He has suggested from MSN these locos:
1466, 3205, 3738, 4160, 4920, 5552, 6000, 7812, 7819, 7822,80136, 92220, 3440, 6201 and 46521

Operating suggestions
1466 sandwiched between the 2 autos
br maunsell rake
choc cream mk1s
maroon hawkworths
and a rake of wagons
have the locos chop and change between the rakes of wagons
and rakes of coaches
you can choose the double headers and such like
So Kenny I have your nominees and I thank you for the help.
Please guys keep the votes coming!
Cheers Seb

Today I went to a car boot sale, and Yeovil Railway Centre. At the boot sale I bought a Matchbox S scale model of Stephenson's Rocket, for a tenner, which I believe is a limited edition. Also I brought a Bachmann BR Standard Brake Van. I have also finished track work to Hatch Junction, but I still need to finish the track in the station. Now for some photos:

Hi all,
From this Wednesday just gone, I have had a mixed traffic gala. Featuring: 6142, D1001 Western Pathfinder, D6524, 45039, D2133, 03371, Tram 11, 7820 and 6624. Yesterday I ran all of these except Tram 11 and 6142, but these were run today, as well as the Crompton and the 03s. I also yesterday took pics and tested some of my old locos, so now I can do a loco list, with photos!

Thanks

I've had an amazing day! Got a Mysterious Black 5, which is tender drive but definatley not Hornby. Any ideas? Pics will come. Also I got a Wrenn Brake end Pullman for a Pound, 44852 being £15 but Mum paid for that. Also Dad bought me a bag of wagons with a fish van (Triang), a continental flatbed (will be used on my Titfield Thunderbolt coach), 2 bodies of flatbeds and the bottom bit of a breakdown crane (will be killed) all for £1.50! They bought this when I was still at home so I reckon they made good decisions, as I didn't have a BR Black 5. This was all from a car boot sale, but the Pullman was from a later one. I also went to an exhibition in the Fleet Air Arm Museum, but I didn't get anything. Although, now I have practically joined a club, but we need to confirm to them.
That's all for now.
Cheers
Seb :)

Assuming that it's not a kit, I was thinking Farish too. Had quite a complicated drive-shaft from the tender to the main loco wheels if I remember correctly. If your's has that, Kenny is correct.

Nope It has no drive from loco to tender. The chassis looks a bit like a Mainline Dean Goods and it has a Dapol coupling on the back, anyway some pics of it.

Well, it's certainly a Black Five, but I can't tell which manufacturer from the photo. It does look sort-of early Hornby however, but I can't see the couplings clearly and the wheels look more fine-scale that early Hornby. Seems to be covered in matt black paint, too. What's inside the cab ?

You haven't said if it's all plastic either.

Tony.

The bogie wheels look like early 1960s Hornby Princess, and there is a large weight in the tender. This:

Bits remain a mystery [the loco/tender coupling for eg], but it looks mostly rather grubby Hornby !
