01/02/18 Vans back in time

As mentioned by Ross in the previous update, Tuesday and Wednesday saw the GCR host a Timeline Events Photocharter.  These events used the Van train rake made predominantly from our vehicles, 11 of the 12 vans we are responsible for. 27605671_1707414849279136_386247649_oAs for the gala the vehicles maintained there labels, chalking and posters adding to the overall aim of the charters, to recreate a bygone age.

On Tuesday 30th the rake was hauled by Ivatt Class 2 46521

On Wednesday 31st the rake was hauled by BR Standard Class 2 78018

I was on hand both days to react to any issues with the vans and also as a reenactor adding a human element to a number of shots, carrying out the roles of P-way Staff, Station Inspector, Shunter, and a 1960s gent observing the passing of steam.
