Does anyone know where City of Truo is?
I've tried searching the NRM website but only find prints.
I can't find a list for locos at Steam either...
Purchased from network rail in working order. Just need to be certified by insurance.
Bought for use at the railway.
Anyone else heard of a class 09 for sale a Swindon?
7808 overhaul was to funded by Bodmin and carried out at the Flourmill, plug was pulled very late in IIRC.
Didcot has already had to hire a locomotive in to cover its calender running days. Having a couple of locomotives on long term hire would not be...
5619 is on long term hire for the foreseeable future
My idea would be that Didcot should loan out a locomotive to a railway who pay for the overhaul and run it for 8 years then return it to Didcot...
So is that possibly three taff tanks at the SCR?
Why has the slask not been used? I thought it had a complete overhaul?
Theres 5 of them in the Forest of Dean. All in bits and in need of restoration.
Wilbur and Warrior, Gloria and Gunby at Norchard and King Fizal at...
Well done to who found 5619 and 6695 for you.
How can you be more selective about what you hire when you have a choice of one maybe two locos to hire????
Its not like Thomas the tank engine...
Because it's what's available. Unless you have a 48xx available for hire?
Most railways are very reluctant to hire any of their loco fleet,...
I hope 6695 becomes a long term fixture in the SCR loco Roster. It will help provide a second engine when the overhaul of 5619 is due.
There should be a warning posted on the forum page about thread Drift!!
Its contagious to all threads on here.
Getting back on track............
It's more a case of the loco owner or group gets a better offer from another site and then upsticks and bug#er off.
5637 is tied to the East...
I think the scr have lost out yet again.
5637, Foremarke and now Owsden.
The loss of the engine is a blow to all involved at the scr.
Personally I think the owner of Owsden always intended to take the loco to Quainton.
This weekend sees Owsden Hall leave for a new home at Quainton.
