    Hi everyone,
    Just posted a few shots of Duke of Gloucester on Sat at SVR and N7 from NNR and Ivatt tank from KWVR at Loughborough during their mini tank gala. The Large prairie 4141 was running for the last time before being withdrawn for overhaul.
    Shame the Fairburn and N2 were not ready. The weather was lousy on Sun.

    Fantastic shots, like the post above i loved the departure shot of 4141!

    Slightly off topic, but is some work being carried out to 30777? Haven't heard of it running in ages now :-k

    Hi Simon,
    As far as I am aware Lamiel is fine. Not Heard of any talk of problems except the usual maintenance work. odds and sods! Don't know why its not being used! Seems a shame to me!
    I think everone has been working flat out on the Fairburn and N2.

    No problem, i too thought it was 34027's boiler until i got corrected, i think on the other side of it is written 34010, the cab of 34027 is near the boiler, which also adds to the confusion!

    Once again, great shots.
