    You've missed a member of the home fleet out... :) And whilst it's looking hopeful, I think DMLL would at least like to get the boiler back on 3850 and start putting it all back together before promising any dates.

    Since I will be staying in Gloucester for the GWSR Steam Fest, all going well, I will certainly visit the friendly forest line.
    Two steam galas in one weekend, how exciting.

    A little unusual that the gala takes place at the weekend but the following day, a Bank Holiday Monday, just a normal 3 train service is in operation.

    I'm sure the DFR have their reasons. <BJ>
