Default GDSF 2015 - Part 1

Iím back home in Cornwall for a night, so half decent internet connection so able to post some pics (and opportunity for a shower plus proper nights sleep).

Ground conditions are soft to medium but sunshine on first day helped no end - plenty of movement throughout past 2 days.

Engine numbers are noticeably down this year, in particular there seems to be holes in the showmans line and a number of local regulars are noticeably absent.

On the flip side several new engines to me, the Scourfield Marshall is a real treat, a lot a work ahead for the team over there.

My first batch of pics:













































































































Iím going back tomorrow for more punishment!

Without wanting to sound like the world's greatest arse licker...

The three Searles road locos have covered great distances on the road this year, and there still up to there usual tricks in the play pen.

That's the mark of good kit!

Their enthusiasm is pretty endless. Made a change though to see 3 engines tackling big load this afternoon without any Searle engines involvement, been a while since that happened:

Nice pictures David. The eddison roller in the tent looks brilliant! So nice it wasn't repainted.

Might just be me but it looks quiet...! Schools going back probably effects midweek crowds quite a bit.

Very quiet, the public camping seems barely half full - I think Saturday will be very busy.

An excellent set of photos, David. Thank you for sharing them with us.

Hopefully, I will make my first trip to GDSF next year.
