Some phots from the day

Unseasonal Summer rain at Eridge as 33063 rests after working the 0900 ex Tunbridge Wells West

20188 at the blocks at Tunbridge Wells West with visiting 33002 seen too

33063 in Groombridge loop with the 1100 Eridge – Tunbridge Wells West

Looking good in the afternoon sun, 33002 with the 1530 Eridge – Tunbridge Wells West

Looking and sounding superb thumper 1317 at Eridge after thumping down from Tunbridge Wells with the 1745 service

At its 1830 departure time from Eridge, the thumper unexpectidly set back to the extreme South of the line before returning North at speed and great EE sounds, wonderfull!

a big thanks to the Spa Valley volunteers for an enjoyable day
