Last weekend, Portbury was one of the visiting guest engines at the Avon Valley Railway’s ‘Industrial Roots’ gala. Also in attendance were Manning Wardle ‘Charwelton’ (from the Kent and East Sussex Railway), as well as ‘Austerity’ tank ‘Sapper’ and Polish-built TKh ‘Karel’.
Here are a few pics and vids from various places on the internet. Highlights included goods trains, and a quadruple header at the end of the day!
Adam Ashford captured these photos and video.
