Swanage Diesel Gala 11th-13th MAY
« on: May 08, 2018, 08:19:12 am »
 :hellosign: I am going to the diesel gala on Thursday in Swanage, I usually go to the SVR, but I thought I`d have a change after a discussion on a train at the SVR last year. Anyone else going?. I have already purchased my 3 day pass.

I'll be heading over on Sunday for what might be my last trip to a Swanage diesel gala.

This year they've increased an advance purchased day rover ticket by 50%.  OK so they'll be running from Norden to Wareham but even so it's quite a hike.

£30 at Swanage versus £26 at the Severn Valley makes the latter seem excellent value especially as there's extra mileage on offer.  Maybe next year.

Does anyone know why 37521 has been cancelled from the Swanage lineup?

Hello, I bought a 3 day pass , £ouch. The SVR gala is so popular, too busy at times, so I thought I`d give Swanage a go. Not sure why the 37 is out, but that IS a big disappointment to me. I`ll be wearing my NGF badge, so be ware!!.

I'll be heading down for all three days, seeing as both 50049 and 50031 will be performing!
3-day gala rover was £56, not too bad in my opinion although £30 per day is a bit much.

37521 failed it's fitness to run exam as far as I'm aware, hence why 50031 has been drafted in to replace.
