    Should be arriving at New Bridge on Monday, so i'm told. Should make a pleasant change from Black 5's and BR Standards.

    Are we starting to see an industrial loco resurgence on the NYMR? I'd like to think it could offer a permanent home for a second example of some sort after Lucie - nan Austerity would be a versatile addition, it just needs someone with a working example who is looking for a home to sound the railway out, based on occasional pilot/brake van special workings.

    Until recently York Area Group had its own website, but Recently the group website had to close down.
    However over the last few weeks we have been working away to get a new website up and running
    Thanks must go to John L for the hard part.

    http://www.nymr-pway.co.uk/

    Let us know what you think good or bad.
    Should anything else be added?


    While it does have NYMR in its title we are an unofficial site and all comments etc are not to be taken as official NYMR sttements.

    Good news too about the B1, as yet another coat of Wilcock's Improved Engine Green bites the dust.

    Am I right in thinking that 1264 will be the first tender engine to run in LNER lined black in preservation?

    AUTHENTICY CLAXON! First you paint it a colour it never carried. They you change its number/name. Whatever next?! Do you realise the amount of wibble (ie. free publicity) this is going to create?! ;)

    Indeed yes Steve. The Q6 ran for a time in the early "Members only" days pre-official reopening [1970-73] as L.N.E.R. 3395 using the 1946 number.

    Still great to see another locomotive shed the dreaded British Railways colours......:D:Chillout::Updated::Resistanceisfutile:!

    Q7?

    So will any other railway have three of the big four liveries running this year?

    The Q7 was plain black too, as was the J15. AFAIK lined black has only ever been seen on the N2 and N7.

    1264 in lne black with 8572....might be a visit to the svr gala for me!

    Now, if someone could persuade the NELPG to do the J27 to match ;-)

    I don't think any other railway could field locos from 3 of the big 4 that could carry pre nationalisation liveries?

    Aye I'd forgotten the Q7! So these previous incarnations were unlined plain black, still L.N.E.R. colours. As Chris has suggested it would be great to see N.E.L.P.G.'s J27 in her original L.N.E.R. colours complete with red lining, having entered service in September[?] 1923. And I say that as an N.E.L.P.G. life member, it's the only livery that she hasn't run in be it with the original number 2392 or 1946 number of 5894:cool:.

    The Bluebell could in theory (though not currently operational) - any number of SR locos; the Dukedog from that lot in Swindon; the North London Tank for the LMS.

    Now that the B1 Boys' are to repaint 1264 into L.N.E.R. livery. There's even more reason to get L.N.E.R.C.A.'s teak set passed for Whitby/Battersby running on the National Network:cool::rolleyes:. As the powers that be, the O.R.R. etc have relaxed/changed the rules with regards to timber bodied stock on Network Rail:Updated:.

    There is nothing wrong with BR liverys and there is no need to hate on it. I can't see how you have a problem with BR black. When BR black is basically the same shade as LNER black and NER black. Apart from the lining, numbers and lettering there are the same.

    Quite right there isn't anything wrong with BR livery, per se. Other than the slavish insistence by some that everything should be turned out in that livery. As if railways came into spontaneous existence on the 1st of January 1948........

    That was a high mileage accumulated in 2017- but what did 76079 manage ?

    I think that 76079 ran close to 18,000. What would have been a typical annual mileage for a loco of this type in BR days? (Bearing in mind, too, that the NYMR is closed for much of November-March)
