    As long as it’s not railway children green! Last known was 52044 but wouldn’t take a lot to get it back to 957.

    Indeed, and to match the other vintage locos. But BR black (or LMS black) are excellent too!

    Is BR black the same as LMS or LNWR black?
    Asking for a friend… ;)

    Pug No. 51218 to appear on static display, making this the LARGEST gathering in preservation of L&YR locos! Anyone willing to fund extraction of 1008 from the NRM to join in?

    I'll stop typing - it's evidently not my strong point today... :eek:

    Looking forward to this event! Having looked at the timetable, there seems to be a couple timing errors?

    Saturday - 1540 from Bury arrives at Ramsbottom at 1555, 5 minutes after the 1550 departure towards Bury!

    Sunday - 1745 from Rawtenstall arrives at Ramsbottom at 1759, 9 minutes after the same train is supposed to depart to Bury!

    Haven't spotted any others. I assume they are typos. Any way of letting someone know?

    Final blow-out Sunday looks "interesting" with all four L&Y Loco's on the same train, plenty of excess power to add a dead 51218 to the lash up!

    Line up at Baron St on the evening of 13th October 2022. A unique gathering of surviving L&Y locos.

    From a 3P20 photo charter. Thanks to all involved for putting this spectacle together.

    I went over to the ELR today for the first day of the Autumn steam gala

    Featuring 3 working and 1 static L&YR locos in preservation (the other I will see tomorrow as it was not out today) and the last gala appearance of 34092 City of Wells before it has its 10 year overhaul, also sentinel ‘Ann’ was doing a bit of shunting in Bury transport museum yard, and 60009 Union of South Africa inside the museum
