'Duchess of Sutherland' is now going to miss the SVR's Autumn Steam Gala as the Stanier pacific is undergoing repairs at Butterley and following the discovery that more work is needed than was originally anticipated, No.6233 will no longer be available.
The 'Duchess' is being replaced at the SVR gala by ex-GWR 'Hall' No.4953 'Pitchford Hall' from the Epping-Ongar Railway.

The second visiting loco for the Mid Hants Railway's Autumn Steam Gala has been announced as BR 4MT 2-6-4T No.80151 from the Bluebell Railway.
The Standard tank will be joining the previously announced visitor ex-SR 'Battle of Britain' No.34092 'City of Wells' plus ex-S&DJR 7F No.53808, BR 4MT No.76017, Ivatt 2MT No.41312 and Hunslet 'Austerity' No.3781 from the home fleet.

Incidentally, the visit of No.80151 temporarily gives the MHR consecutively numbered Standard 4MT tanks, as No.80150 is based on the line although not yet restored from Barry Scrapyard condition.

The West Somerset Railway is holding it's Autumn Steam Gala over the weekend of Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd October featuring locos from the home fleet - GWR 'Large Prairie' No.5199, rebuilt 'Large Prairie' No.9351 and 'Manors' Nos.7822 'Foxcote Manor' & 7828 'Odney Manor'.
Whilst it is billed as a steam gala, at least one diesel will also be in operation "likely to be the Hymek".

The Apedale Valley Light Railway's Steam Gala will feature two visiting locos from Statfold Barn: Hudswell Clarke 0-6-0WT No.GP39 & Quarry Hunslet 0-4-0ST 'Sybil Mary'.
It is hoped that the overhaul of Avonside 0-4-0T 'Ogwen' will be completed in time for the loco to put in an appearance at the gala, alongside residents Kerr Stuart 0-4-2ST 'Stanhope', Hudswell Clarke 0-6-0WT W/No.1238 & Hunslet 2-8-0T No.303.

Following on from John's post regarding the withdrawal 60009 'Union of South Africa' from service (and therefore the ELR's Autumn steam gala), the visiting locos are now confirmed for the gala: LMS-designed Ivatt 2MT 2-6-2T No.41312 from the Mid Hants Railway & GWR-designed 'Manor' 4-6-0 No.7820 'Dinmore Manor' from the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway.

It appears that BR 4MT 2-6-4T No.80151 & visiting USATC S160 2-8-0 No.6046 will not be available for the Bluebell Railway gala this weekend, although the reason for their absence is not yet clear. SR S15 4-6-0 No.847 & SE&CR H class 0-4-4T No.263 will be taking their place at the gala, and No.6046 will be on static display at Sheffield Park.
