|A big thank you to the organisers of the Diesel Gala for such a great event. We all had a great time. The sun was shining all weekend. The scenery was, as always, spectacular and the motive power was a joy to watch.
It was also nice to catch up with some nice people - Craig Allen, Rich Mackin, Andy Slater, and to meet James Covell.
Also a huge thank you to Rosalyn and George at the Grosmont Guest house for making our stay so pleasant and finally a big thank you to Phil for helping me with the video work - A bit more off road next year ;o)
Perhaps next year we can organise some night time workings! - See you all in 2005
