Yes indeed, but there are some aspects of paragraph 2 of BrightonBaltic's post that I can appreciate to an extent. I've not visited the GWS for some years but it may well now be a victim of the growth of heritage lines in the UK. Recent reports from visitors seem to underline this view. Certainly I think there would be more merit in a Castle and a Saint running between Cheltenham Race Course and Broadway. (I remember the former locos running on the line but not the latter!) Regarding the 47xx, I was one of the unbelievers who thought that such a loco would never be built and posted so on Nat. Pres. some time ago. It would seem that I was wrong (again!). There's no evidence I've seen that a 47xx ever traversed what is now the GWSR but it wouldn't look out of place. Our 2807 can do the job well enough though (once we can get back to overhauling it). I can't comment on the West Somerset Railway (probably the only person on Planet Earth who can't or doesn't by the look of this website!) as I've yet to visit but it could well end up as BrightonBaltic suggests. I hope not. Regarding his view of that thing on pallets at Mizens pretending to be a B17, well, yes, that's what it seems to be! There's one at Llangollen that is progressing well enough anyway. I can see the merit in using a Pacer or two on some heritage lines as they would be relatively cheap and a good way to bimble along a scenic heritage line, as long as all loose items were safely stowed! As regards people, well, I freely admit to being very sad to see loved ones dying without their families but pleased in seeing Mother Nature reminding us that this Earth isn't ours actually.
