    I'm told that this event has been very successful. I wonder why the Bodmin and Wenford doesn't receive more attention in these pages?

    I spent a couple of hours at Colesloggett Halt last Thursday. I saw very few empty seats on the four trains that I saw pass through; those that were empty had probably been vacated by window-hangers.
    My wife went to Bodmin Parkway on Saturday and she said that the station was "jumping".
    Having seen 'The Cornishman' excursion arrive in Cornwall on Monday and then witnessed the scenes on the B & W later in the week, it's clear that the people of The Duchy have taken 60163 to their hearts.
    A big thank you to all those who let us borrow this magnificent locomotive for the last seven days.
    Stef.

    Anthony,
    @Hemerdon has posted on another thread that he's heard that she may leave on Friday.

    5 years ago then! Think the A1 trust have said in the past they don't like putting it on the back of a lorry.
