NYMR STEAM SPRING GALA 2010, 2014 and 2016 - Scottish Branch Line Gala

The 2016 North Yorkshire Moors Railway Spring Steam Gala, May 6th-8th and May 13th-15th 2016, was originally entitled the "Branch Line Steam Gala", but now is called the NYMR "Scottish Branch Line Gala". Two of the steam locomotives due to run were ex GWR large Prairie tank 4144, and LNWR Webb Coal Tank 1054. Sadly, NOT so, they are being 'replaced' by diesel locomotives Class 26 26038 named "Tom Clift" and Class 55 'Deltic' 55022 masquerading as 55007 "Pinza" plus resident Class 37 37264. However, the three steam locomotives, namely Riddles BR standard tank engine 80072 (running as 80126), Stanier Black Five 45428 (running as 44787)and Riddles BR Std locomotive 76079 (running running as 76001), Q6 63395 and Class 25 diesel locomotive D7628 Sybilla will all run. 2016 NYMR Scottish Branch Line Gala Spring Steam Gala Branch Line Steam Gala steam locomotives running dates North Yorkshire Moors Railway Service photos images photographs pictures
