    "much of the brass-work such as the door hinges are having paint scraped off them as there has been a change of heart. They were previously to be painted (as they were in the vehicle's latter days) but it has now been decided that they would be better plain brass (as per the vehicle's earlier days)."

    Good call there; I know it will be more work, but it will look wonderful.

    Any photos of 419 in action? Would have liked to visit for the gala but was abroad.

    Been reading the 4F 44422 is leaving the WSR. Would the NNR be interested in hiring another Midland type?

    Latest Joint Line has revealed that the M&GN Society has been left around a million pounds in the will of a supporter, with the condition that it is used for the repair/overhaul of the society’s steam fleet.

    Fantastic news, especially with the overhaul of the B12 on the horizon.
