    A news article from rail advent today seems to suggest that trialing bio coal on 2MT 78022 has been a success and managed to still steam properly up from Keighley with 5 coaches on the 14th of February, a glimmer of hope bio coal may work on the 4ft 8in loco,s besides the narrow gauge loco,s at the Bure valley line.

    Given the durations of periods of hard working and the opportunities to replenish fuel i can see that Bio coal could work for many heritage lines.
    Main line i think we are still a way off...

    60009 was stabled briefly at Haworth some years ago but I don't think she worked any trains.

    Lovely day on the KWVR today, the first visit in 22 years. A beautiful branch line. The wreath was to mark the passing of Mr Perks [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
