This special weekend featured 1 guest engine being 7802 Bradley Manor visiting courtesy of the Erlestoke Manor Fund & the Severn Valley Railway.

7802 Bradley Manor featured at the GCRs Winter Steam Gala the weekend before. This was her final weekend before returning home to the Severn Valley Railway

The Western Loco Weekend also featured the GCRs home fleet being 6990 Witherslack Hall & 92214 Leicester City
