Congratulations to the volunteers of the East Lancs who provided a good service in trying circumstances. To paraphrase Oscar Wilde: "to lose 1 loco is unfortunate, but to lose 2 locos looks like carelessness"....well the E Lancs have managed to lose 3 locos from their original Gala line-up in a matter of days. 80080 was failed beforehand - frozen pipes in the boiler according to ther rumour mill - 45337 was failed on Friday and visitor (SVR) 46443 failed on Saturday afternoon. Not much left then. On this video: Ivatt 46443 near Summerseat, Brooksbottom Viaduct and Irwell Vale; Standard 5 (Caprotti) 73129 leaving Summerseat and at Townend Fold; 71000 Duke of Gloucester near Summerseat, Ramsbottom and Ewood Bridge; Black 5 44871 at Townsend Fold
