    The boiler for DSB no. 656 returned from LMS at Loughborough yesterday and was placed back in the frames. Shouldn't be too long before it returns to traffic.

    Save the date!

    We are just finalising the arrangements and full details are to follow, but save the date if you’re interested in an evening of Bahamas with the wagons.
    Please don’t call or email us as booking is not yet open, but we’ll let you know when you can book and what the event will entail as soon as we can.

    I see that 4144 is no longer listed for Didcot's steam & diesel weekend at the end of September. Should I assume it is staying Nene Valley a bit longer or is it going elsewhere?

    I've just put another of my old VHS videos of the NVR on YouTube. It was taken at a diesel gala in October, 1994 and includes D306 and 58 049. The PW gang are also seen at work fettling the Fletton Loop in readiness for 60009 to visit later in the month. Here's the link if you'd like to see it:

    Some pictures of the Duchess at Wansford today. Terrible weather in the afternoon, but still the railway was very busy which was great to see.
