With the easing of Covid-19 restrictions across the country, the UK's heritage railway network has begun to gradually reawaken from its temporary slumber, with normal timetabled services now resuming and galas coming back into play. The Severn Valley Railway kicked off the gala front, with their 'Spring Steam Up', held over April 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th. This event saw the Great Western Society's new-build Saint Class 'Lady of Legend' making her first foray out into the wild, having spent the last two years, since her launch into traffic, at her Didcot home. Paired up with a full 8 car set of the SVR's beautifully restored GWR coaching stock for the 09:05 departure off Bridgnorth throughout the gala, she looked truly stunning and a testament to what the preservation movement can achieve.

The full gala line up included:

- Port Talbot Railway 0-6-0ST
- GWR 5700 Class 0-6-0PT
- GWR Saint Class 4-6-0 'Lady of Legend'
- GWR 6959 Class 'Modified Hall' 4-6-0 'Raveningham Hall'

Massive thanks to all those involved in pulling off one hell of an event in these difficult times, it really was one of the best two days filming at a gala that I've had for a long time, with terrific weather, stellar performances and the chance to catch up with many of my friends, whom I haven't seen for a good while. Cheers!
