Marchlyn (Avonside 2067/1933), one of the two guest locos, looking resplendent at Becconsall. The last time I saw this loco was at Statfold Barn in June 2011, where she looked a little forlorn.
Polish locomotive Chrzanow 3506/1957, currently not in working order.
The other visiting loco at the gala was Surrey County Council Highways Department GP39 (Hudswell Clarke 1643/1930). It is seen here at Becconsall Station.
Another view of Surrey County Council GP39 at Beconsall, 11th August 2012.
There was no visible identification on this locomotive, but I think it is Baguley 3002, a petrol engined loco built in 1937.
Surrey County Council GP39 at the head of the only double headed passenger train I saw on 11th August.
The other locomotive on the double-headed train was Irish Mail (Hunslet 823/1903)
GP39 returning to Becconsall with the passenger train, 11th August 2012.
Irish Mail was the oldest locomotive in steam on 11th August, being 109 years old.

No 5 (Ruston & Hornsby 200478/1940) in the sidings, 11th August 2012.
Another assumption on my part: I think this is No 49 "Samson", Hibberd 1887 of 1934) in the sidings.
And although it is sheeted over I think this is electric locomotive Welsh Pony (British Electric Vehicles 640 of 1926)
Looking very forlorn in the sidings was Hibberd 3916 of 1959, loco No 39 in the WLLR fleet.

Mill Reef (Motor Rail 7371/1939) in the diesel shed on 11th August 2012.
The only shot I could get of the West Lancashire Railway's first locomotive: No 1, Clwyd, is a Ruston & Hornsby diesel, works number 264251 of 1951.
Another loco on which I could find no identification, but I think it is Motor Rail 8992 of 1946, no 7 in the WLLR fleet.
Another view of Motor Rail 8992/1946.
The best shot I could manage of locos 30 (Motor Rail 11258/1964, and carrying the number 12) and 40 (Ruston & Hornsby 321705 of 1949).
Loco No 8 (I think), Hudson Hunslet 4480/1953 under repair
Based on the maker's plate by the side of this loco I assume it is Lister 29890/1946.
The other diesel loco I saw working on 11th August was No 10 (Hibberd 2555/1942) which was used to shunt some stock.
