April 2006 and it's
Steam Gala time on the East Lancashire Railway. This time I started
the trips with a day rover ticket, having travelled by road to
Rawtenstall rather than face the problem of parking at Bury.
The first train out after I arrived was hauled by 92214 but,
having downloaded a card full of shots into a portable hard drive,
I arrived home to find the device was faulty and had not taken
the images into its memory. Hence no shots of 92214.
I only part used the card for the second lot - largely due to
the appalling weather - and was able to recover some of the deleted
shots by means of some techno wizardry! The 4F and the class
5 shots were all I managed to save.
