These photos, taken by Julian Clark at Ropley, show 53808 in service on Friday 9 October. The gala continues until the end of Sunday.

The first three photos show 53808 on the 9.25 am ‘parcels’ service and the monochrome image is 53808 on the 11.20 am ex-Alton demonstration freight service, with our Peckett ‘Kilmersdon’ just visible in the background. The final picture was taken at Ropley in the late afternoon.
