  2. jnc liked Jamessquared's post in the thread Bluebell Railway General Discussion.

    Essentially the answer is more under cover storage. The ASH project provides a bit more workshop space under cover and better display, but isn't a major change in total amount of space under cover. However, OP4 (for the carriages) has, or will,...

    Well that just about suns it for 30064 when it arrived at the Bluebell it was used to earn its keep. I spent a lot of my time years ago when it first arrived at Droxford & Liss to help restore it and raise funds to keep it going. Now its out...

    I would suggest you pass this onto the A1ST as it appears to be a black plastic bag / bin liner which might have impeded the lubrication to the middle cylinder; given the heat at the piston area it could be that the plastic has subsequently...

  7. Chris86 liked 26D_M's post in the thread Liveries!.

    Well 80135 has been "Green in normal service" all my life so far, which is sadly much longer than BR used it. We have to understand that not every owner wishes to recreate a historical artefact. Green suits the loco aesthetically to my mind and...

  8. Chris86 liked 2392's post in the thread Liveries!.

    Here's my reply in the N.Y.M.R. thread as to the why's and where for's of 80135 being turned out in B.R. green. Whilst yes some did end up on Western Region like the 3MT 2-6-2 tanks, they didn't last long enough to get the "Swindon Green"...

    No hint of bias there! Have to say I rather enjoyed the Standard 2 and the Y14 up Kelling bank on Friday considering I wasn't planning to go until half 10 on Friday morning when I got to a suspiciously quiet Norwich Station and no 37's were...
