Loco roster updated for July https://www.bluebell-railway.com/locomotive-roster/
Seems Fenchurch will not be making its birthday bash after all

And the Bulleids on GWSR and SVR.
Bluebell has always been 9017s home regardless whether GWR fits in Sussex or not.
I'm sure 9017 will follow the 9F in the workshop. That's what I been hearing as a possibility
And the reports are correct. - Due to leave the Bluebell over the coming weeks for restoration.
Oh of course.
Yesterday marked my first visit to the line since the 2016 gala when the 9F, 80072, 1744 ans "Jennifer" was running and it quickly asked myself...
Out of curiosity has Knowle been fully repaired now having been withdrawn a few months ago for mechanical attention or does it still require...
