    I was surprised to hear that GR272 is on loan to the NRM and was working today. It is powering the brake van rides in the yard. They cost £3 but apparently you are then entitled to a coffee afterwards for a £1! Where else can you get Grant Ritchie haulage?

    If I'd have known, that would have been worth a trip out to York for; just one question, the coffee - Espresso, Cappucinno or Cafe Lungo??

    Cheers,

    Bagnall 2746 The Duke

    We got the boiler away today, to David Wright's new works at Loughborough. Cab sides now erected and waiting for a further supply of whitworth bolts from New Brunswick Ironworks at Caernarvon. Steam heat gear dismantled and under overhaul.

    I hear that KESR No22 (30065 / Maunsell) is running out of ticket soon? Does anyone know the date of its final run? :) Thanks!

    Sorry Probably a bit too late telling you.
    It's currently working the New Years Eve Wealden Pullman, and is expected to do two trips tomorrow, New Years Day. That's it then, end of ticket I believe.

    No problem - thanks for replying :). I hope to see No22 back in action one day, but I feel it may be a long time ....

    Does anyone know the correct diameter for the blastpipe cap on an austerity? We bought a new casting for The Duke some years ago and we are hoping to machine it shortly.

    Well, you could pop down in February, if you don't mind engines with plastic faces on.... Maunsell's ticket actually runs out in February, and at present it is proposed to use her at our half term Thomas running.
