    Always remember when they had a Blood and Custard set, BR Southern Green, Maroon and Chocolate and Cream set back in the '80's. I think this has been asked before and the response was something in the line of it takes longer to apply and is harder to maintain them looking good. I for one would love to see a Blood and Custard set back on the MHR.

    Crompton 33053 was used in the recent Thomas Event, luckily it had a face on one end only. RN5243.jpg RN5245.jpg

    This coming weekend is the 40th anniversary of the reopening of the Watercress Line.

    Working all weekend, so no opportunity to pop up, except perhaps at 11:00 on Sunday for 30 mins!

    Makes me also feel old. I remember going there back in the late 70s. I wonder how many of the original volunteers are still working at the railway.
