 Quorn station.

 Surely the star of the show?

 There were diesels on display.

 Double header on show at Leicester North.

 Swapping ends with the 47.

 Loughborough.

 The 9F was not in service for the event.

 What was the year again?

 78018 was shunting stock.

 Leaving Loughborough on my final journey of the day, passing 37714 parked outside the station.
What a truly remarkable day this had been and what a credit to the GCR it was, trouble is, how do you follow it? To see 73069 (73156) and 48476 (48624) storming through Quorn on an "express service" heading South, non-stop and 70013 in similar vein with its whistle open, was a truly remarkable experience that made the hair on the back of your neck stand on end - I was back in the 60's.
