Do we have any provisional passenger numbers for the Spring Gala, or to put it another way, was it a financial success?

Just curious.

Thanks Patrick.

A 62% increase, over what, the last previous Spring Gala?

Sorry, but the figure is meaningless unless the comparator is quoted Wink

Not long. It's booked on photo charters Mon-Tue-Wed, and will be in the yard Thur.

I've heard it goes next Tuesday, just after 10am - to Crewe?

According to uksteam.info, Bittern is to provisionally head for Barrow Hill on Tuesday 10th April

Thanks,

Not Crewe, 4464 is going straight to Chesterfield for Barrow Hill's Fab 4 gala. Tuesday makes sense as an Easter monday move was not popular.

61994 has a Crewe- Barrow Hill LE movement on the same day. It may well be that they will share a path from Crewe?

That's the reason it goes via Crewe then!

Thanks for the link Patrick. Most interesting.

I wonder which event will have generated the most net income, ie "profit" ?
