Record passenger numbers were recorded in the wake of 'The Tornado Effect' after another superb Steam Gala on the NNR. Alongside the star engine were all the home fleet. J15 7564 was paired with the Quad-Arts for the weekend, making a sublime sight. Class 31 D5631 was also in use over the weekend to substitute Black 5 45379 which was cancelled last minute due to axlebox issues.
