    It was out on test yesterday. When I arrived Sea Lion was in the platform but the train was full, so I waited for it to return and Brown Bear was hauling it. Brown Bear hauled the return, then double headed the return with Sea Lion, before returning to the shed and being positioned outside next to Otter.

    Is "Annie' in hiding? It's original 2'-6" gauge prototype has a sibling .... another diminutive Bagnall, an 0-4-2st+t (originally an 0-4-0st) "Jack", like it's sister, mechanically very similar to all the other Groudle locos (and quite similar to "Otter"). After many moons spent as part of a rubbish tip, the remains of both reside at a Gisborne (NZ) college facility.

    Annie is at the back of the engine shed needing some work on the 'bottom end' I believe. It was good to see Brown Bear out and about yesterday.
