    Good news. Any idea what happened to the quarrymans coaches that were presumably with Jubilee at Penrhyn?

    Why didn't the NGRM want it back?

    Excellent! I’m sure Peter Rampton would have been delighted. Not a flippant comment, he was a good friend for 30+ years.

    It was only on loan to them from Welsh Slate, and it was moved out to make room for another loco.

    Great news. With their new(ish) facilities up and running, the VoR have developed a fine and well deserved reputation for getting the job done over recent years.

    The first line of the article is:
    "The 11-tonne Manning Wardle “Jubilee 1897”, so named to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, has been sold to the Vale of Rheidol Railway at Aberystwyth which had been its foster home for the past two years."

    So it is; clearly I didn't read that bit properly!

    So the word 'sold' in the artical is meaningless?

    Good to see Jubilee 1897 is been rebuilt. I remember her in the shed at Felin Fawr in 2017. The team there were so excited at the prospect of rebuilding the engine and returning it to service on the PQR.
    Sadly not be so. With the proposal to create a World Heritage Site in the Quarry’s of North Wales what should have been.
