    Well done that man, a six figure donation is certainly putting your money where your mouth is!!!

    Undoubtedly push the railway over the finishing line for purchasing the loco.

    Probably been posted elsewhere on here but I cannot find it, noted on Facebook over the weekend that City of Wells is apparently presently running with Tangmere's tender as there are problems with a box on hers keeping running hot?

    We had a good day on the ELR despite the rain on Saturday and City of Wells was in great form. DSCF6798.JPG

    Absolutely. He also supports the CVR, paying to drive at least once a year on average. No doubt he does similar at other lines around the UK.

    He does. He’s a great supporter of 34081. He loves Flat Tops.
