MHR Dates being advertised at Steam Illuminations
Spring Steam Gala 29/4-1/5
Diesel Gala 14/7-16/7
Autumn Steam Gala 6/10-8/10
Latest Bluebell Times makes for interesting reading. Possibly a 207 and 73 on the way :)
Don't forget there's also 20059/188 and 47579 (although admittedly not that great for STEAM illuminations apart from pushing the Ivatt round!)
Don't take this as gospel but i've seen a photo of Ropley Yard today showing 30925/53808 in steam over the pit so I would guess they would be...
Yes, you beat me to it on here! Busy day undoing several bolts of varying sizes on 50027 so was updating when I could when I got the message through!
47579 vice 53808 currently. Unsure of reason
Correct, only the service trains are showing on the public TT.
41312 works LE up to Alton, 53808 works LE back.
30925 is bolted onto 41312's...

Not currently, needs some bodywork repairs.
Thinking about it I'm pretty sure 188 has been out solid since Saturday 30th July
Steam ban extended until at least Sunday 21st August. A token gesture of Kermit being in steam at Ropley.
Speaking of loco crisis, all this...
Last I heard it's going to be Class 20 Wednesday and 47579 Thursday.
On the subject of diesels, thanks to everyone who paid a visit to the diesel...
It's not really the noise under load but more the idling. The whistling noise can travel for miles!
Link updated, small revisions took place this afternoon
4TC arriving tomorrow
It's good news everyone!
Timetable is now available and can be found here:...
None yet as far as I know. 33111 is coming by road, everything else by rail.
66 moves this week were a route learner for upcoming engineering...
Cheers for those kind words, I'll pass them onto Andy (not sure if he's on here but he certainly doesn't post here!)
Hoping to have 50027 open...
What he said!
Final guest announcement for the MHR Diesel Gala of 33111 + LUL 4TC. A real southern flavour this year.
