The red Crab was joined by a green and a blue A4 to provide a full-colour group of headliners at the East Lancashire Railway Autumn gala, with a strong supporting cast of black engines. Large crowds had come to see the crimson Crab for the first time, as well as to enjoy perhaps the last multiple appearance of A4s in the past two years of celebration.

They were joined by John Cameron's other loco, The Great Marquess, beginning another long winter visit, the resident Standard tank and Jinty, and the 1896 L&Y Aspinall 0-6-0 which would make a poignant double header with the Crab at the end of my visit.
