    A pacific tank would be a sight to behold. Though it's a shame neither survived, the LBSC J1/J2 class were essentially express locos, with drivers (let's be honest) not best suited to 25mph operation. The NER had some which, with their smaller...

    For another thread really, but no, I don't believe so. The question is actually "how best we can utilise our assets" I think. There is as Tom says a big problem with undercover storage space. No disputing that, it's a nationwide problem and some...

    Absolutely! Or a hot summer day in say, 1950 at Horham, Mid-Suffolk Light, with a J15 on a mixed train, or an evening about the same time at Beccles Bank, with a pair of B17s on a combined "up" fish train ex Lowestoft/Yarmouth, or Woodrolfe...

  4. Hicks19862 liked 30854's post in the thread Great Central Railway after the link up.

    Having read several reviews on Trip Advisor, my conclusion is that there are some people with some downright odd expectations out there. In the case of the Corris, it would have been reasonable to ask just what the hell one reviewer expected from...

  5. Hicks19862 liked joe_issitt's post in the thread LMS Patriot Project Updates.

    My guess would be that Simon Scott and his team at West Shed would be doing it? MRC have got a much smaller boiler from one of their Jintys at NNR engineering, so I'd be confused why they'd do a much bigger boiler....

    Ok I admit I am wrong. I have been involved with the NNR for 10 years and never knew his first name was actually Malcolm. Interestingly 'Hugh Harkett' was a director of the M&GN society.

    Maybe the person who bought John Oldcorn's shares does not want to be a Director.

    Companies house records John Oldcorn ceasing to be a person 'with significant control' as of 11/11/17 David Husband is also recorded as ceasing to be a director on 11/11/17 Malcolm Harkett (NNR Managing Director) was appointed as a director on...

    Glad '84 is staying on the NNR. After the B12 and Y14 it's my favourite on the line.

    According to the "Friends of the North Norfolk Railway" facebook group, 76084 remains in shared ownership and is staying on the North Norfolk Railway. The impression given is that nothing has changed in the way 76084 is used or operated.
