    Great to see and ride behind 41313 and 46447 at the East Somerset today, even with the rain this morning and noise from that 'music event' nearby..

    A Big Thank You to all those that made it happen, really something to celebrate !!

    Just had a look at the roster on the IOWSR website, 41298 was scheduled to be working today, not sure about 41298 but travelled behind 41313 and 46447 at the ESR earlier...

    What a day! The Ivatt Trust' dream from the 1970's appears to have happened today, brilliant and Thank You !!

    Need to visit the IOW when 41298's out to complete the set...

    I can confirm that 41298 was working today, so all three Ivatt trust Ivatts working on the same day.

    My video and some photos of an enjoyable day today at the launch. Safe to say that Cranmore have once again done an excellent job!

    Fantastic video! Apologies for all the steam on the first train. We had sat still for an hour so didn't want to shut the drain cocks too soon!

    Wonderful work. I visited a few years ago now, and the Cranmore restoration team is entirely volunteers, isn't it?
