East Lancashire Railway – Spring Steam Gala 2018 (4K)

Over the weekend of 3rd/4th March 2018, we find ourselves back at the East Lancashire Railway for the second time in 2018.

In what was a very hit and miss event, due to the snow brought in by the Beast From The East, but we braved the weather for a visit on the Saturday and Sunday.

Due to the inclement weather, we didn’t attend on Friday as planned.

Our shots range from Rawtenstall to Bury. Please note: some shots have been taken out for featuring in our 2018 DVD. See more here
