    Not an issue when the train is at MD on it's 25/30 min dwell though (when the DR shunt goods/shuttle used to run).

    One thing the WSR need to do when the trains are running late is stop dispatching trains from MD/BL asap cause then they just wait at BA/CH for ages.

    A simple announcement on the tannoy 'this train will now leave at x time' instead would notify passengers.

    What new documents are you referring to, as the last entry I have seen is the reference to when their AGMs will be held, which is old news.

    An era when transfers had taken over.

    I still have a couple of wagons awaiting my ministrations.

    I replied to this stating that it was with us for the Autumn Steam Gala.

    However, on Steve Edges website is an image taken on Tuesday of it trundling up the M5 on a low loader.

    Seems that someone needs to update the official website ASG page.

    It's off to Tyseley for their open day this weekend. No reason why it shouldn't be back early next week.

    It may be an idea to hang fire a while as the WTT may be altered. This is due to NR using the triangle to turn stone trains on the first two days of the gala and therefore preventing WSR locos from turning. <BJ>
