The morning of the 2006 Gala event was a hive of activity. A view of the steaming bays shows two regular public haulers, #5192 Jersey Lil, and Black 5 #5059. The Mayor of Basingstoke can be seen in the background with the club's treasurer and chairman. The club's vice-chairman, Terry Hobbs, can also be seen with his loco to the right of the picture. The 2006 Gala weekend was a successful event, due to the weather's kindness, along with great enthusiasm from both visitors, and most importantly, society members.
