    Apparently the class 107 DMUs and support coaches are set to leave the Tanat Valley in the next few weeks, destination currently unknown. No mention of the box van that was part of the sale.

    All will be replaced by... another Pacer.

    Apparently the ex-Bletchley Tube wagon has moved to the Aln Valley Railway. Not sure what the plans for it there are.

    To be fair - the final sentence of their report does state "The Pullman car has, however, left the Locomotive Storage site today (June 21), and returned to Swanage."
    It was withdrawn from service due to COVID restrictions effectively prohibiting it's use.
    Now those restrictions are no longer in force Car 14 has been returned to Swanage (as a return load) for some [hopefully] fairly minor works before re-entering passenger service.

    Not a move, but a change of ownership: Pullman car Aquila, which has been at the Bluebell Railway since the middle of 2021, has been sold by it's former owner to the Bluebell Railway Trust.

    Mk1 BFK 14021 moved from Hardingham station (adjacent to Mid Norfolk Railway) to Sheringham on the North Norfolk Railway on Wednesday 20th July. The coach will be restored as a Brake First Open with a kitchen in the luggage area to run in the NNR’s North Norfolkman dining train replacing the existing kitchen car housed in BG 81033. The passenger saloon will have 24 first class seats in what will be a unique vehicle as BR never built and Mk1 BFOs.

    SR (SECR -design) Dance Hall Brake van No. S55490 has moved from the Bluebell to the KESR. (The vehicle was indentently owned, not a Bluebell vehicle).

    The other Dance Hall, 11916, remains on the Bluebell and is currently on display at Kingscote.
