No.41312 and milk-train approach Horsted Keynes with the 9.50am from Sheffield Park
on the Saturday morning.

A little later, No.1638 - proudly carrying a 'Return to Steam' headboard - drifts
towards a signal-check at Horsted Keynes.

Nos.55 and 65 make a fine sight as they arrive at Horsted Keynes with the 11am
from Sheffield Park.

No.96 'N ormandy' gave shunting demonstrations at Horsted Keynes throughout the weekend.
She is seen here taking a break at Horsted Keynes on Saturday morning.

Plenty of shots from Saturday's night shoot have already been published elsewhere,
so here's a slightly different view of No.41312 (as 41284) at Horsted Keynes.

No.9017 works away from Leamla nd Bridge with the 2.35pm ex. Sheffield
Park on the Sunday.

What a magnificent machine! Newly restored No.1638 storms away from a signal-check
at Three Arch bridge on the Sunday afternoon.

For me, No.96's run-pasts at Horsted Keynes were one of the highlights of the event.

As the light begins to fade, No.41312 climbs away from Three Arch bridge
with the 4.18pm from Sheffield Park.
