    Do we know what's hauling the Welsh Marches run tomorrow? According to RTT it's something coming up from Bishop's Lydeard to Bristol as usual. As far as I know that's 61306 unless any other LSL locos are now at the WSR. I would expect that if...

    A superb event, many thanks to everyone who made it happen! Not many times you get to see 6 GWR locos in steam built over the span of (if my calculations are correct) 99 years! Wife, dog and I opted for today rather than Saturday (guessing,...

    I like the second shot because I'm in it (looking out the window)! Some serious diesel shoveage there but what do you expect when restarting a 12 coach load on a wet track and you're 90 minutes late. Judging by the noise from the Brit I would...

    From an enthusiast point of view I am looking forward to this one - who wouldn't? However there are a few unanswered questions in my mind...... 1) Do they really need 8 Bulleids? I thought 6 was enough (5 worked fine last time) - does adding...

    Well the sceptics among us were proved wrong, I'm happy to say that 6880 made it! It was worth the wait - she looks fabulous and seemed to be managing her duties well. What an achievement by the Betton Grange Society! You should be rightly...

    Well I'd certainly be happy with that as 35018 is the only working Bulleid that I haven't seen in action. Last time I saw it, it was languishing in the "headshunt of doom" on the Mid-Hants. Long time ago!
