A huge thanks to the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway team for hosting our special PLEG event in beautiful sunshine and ensuring that the evening went so well. Special thanks to Jo and Mike for all their support in planning and executing the event so professionally. Real ales were sold on board the train and cab rides were arranged over some unusual lines at Lakeside, and a rare track shunt was also delivered at Haverthwaite. By special arrangement Class 20, 20214 and Class 27, 27024 were both positioned for photography purposes at Haverthwaite station.

Thanks to Kev Adlam from the PLEG Policy group from organising the event and thank you to Martyn Brailsford, Alan Sheppard and Jim Sellens for their fantastic work in helping as stewards.
