    A recent visit to Goathland allowed me to visit the five vehicles in the care of the H&BRSF two bogie coaches, a brake van and two open wagons. Only the two wagons are currently restored. The group are slowly plodding on with the first coach. 20180709_150057.jpg

    Oh, didn't know about this! How "under overhaul" is it? Weekly working parties? That's not too far away from my student house...

    Edit - It seems from Facebook that working parties there are only on Mondays. :( Blast.
    Further edit - Sent them an email on the off chance, I'm quite keen to join a rolling stock group near Sheffield but the LMSCA is just a bit out of reach for me.

    Not involved with the group unfortunetly. Just impressed by what they are trying to do for what was a small company. You'd like to think one day they can run all three coaches on the moors.

    Be nice to see the Lambton Colliery Kitson turned out in H&B Olive Green at the head of the train one day- was also a H&B design.
    As for the Quainton Road, there are no pics, and not sure if it even exists anymore Would love to get hold of what's left of it. Quainton are another linear scrapliner with rusty old stuff. Like that Egyptian sentinel someone must have made a lot of effort repatriating it but its scrap now. Perhaps they had a lot of older guys who moved on and the remaining younger folk don't like the Sentinel?

    There are good fast roads nearly all the way from Sheffield to Pickering!

    Quite! Public transport is my only option, and I don't really want to go beyond a tenner in travel costs per week.

    Potentially some members based in that area travelling to Goathland. Potential to car share.

    There are indeed some H&BRSF members who work on the coaches at Goathland (I think they have working parties every month) so I'm sure you could get a lift if you want to - have a look at their facebook page. It would make a change from Mk 1s, though! They are also working on the coach at Elsecar, but I don't think there are any plans to make that one a runner.
