Sandstone Steam Gala Sunday 25 March 2012

The day began with three Orenstein & Koppel locomotives of three different sizes in operation. The two green ones succumbed to various ailments during the course of the morning.

Later in the morning NGG153 came out again.

A lunchtime inspection allowed a look at a couple of modern Baguley-Drewry diesels rescued from Mozambique and in poor condition . . . .
. . . . and this Ruston & Hornsby.

The afternoon track circuit by the Garratt was accompanied by a variety of road and rail vehicles.
