As there's no current equivalent to the thread under Steam Traction, I thought I would start one. The WLA have a new website http://www.westernlocomotives.co.uk/ D1062 is now winterised and requires work on the B end bogie which is hoped to take place at the new Kidderminster depot. There are also appeals for new drive shafts and pre-heaters, see http://www.westernlocomotives.co.uk/appeals Class 27 D5410 is expected to shortly leave for UKRail's Leicester site for repairs. Class 50 50049 was started up on 31st October for the first time since 2012 after repairs to its engine. The DMU is currently running as a 4 car with TBSL 59250 away for repainting.
