    Question - Not sure if it's true or not but did hear from somewhere that there's no eth fitted stock at churnet?

    Any plans to rectify this? just as there's both the 33s plus 47524 that have the ability to provide eth. also saves having to top & tail them with a steam loco.

    There is no ETH, and no plans to alter.

    We need people to support the Steam Heat Van, as this will more than cope with our needs.

    I'll chuck a few quid towards that for definite. Not many steam heat vans in pres that work & enables the diesel fleet to work solo during the winter which will be good.

    Is the stock dual brake or vac only?

    Vac only. There is the odd duel brake coach kicking about out of service, but the railway have removed the air brakes and electric heat from most of its coaches during their major restorations.
