    SD website has been updated to show Mayflower now the rostered engine for five trips in May & June. Given that David Buck, the person who has taken over from Marcus Robertson as SD's chief honcho, is Mayflower's owner, this is hardly a surprise. 6233 was originally rostered for the four Sherborne trips in March/April, but this has now changed to "Steam hauled."

    Following on from my earlier post, the trains originally allocated to 6233 are now to be hauled by a "Stanier Black Five". Again, no surprise here. How would main line steam in the preservation era ever have coped without Sir Willam's 5MTs, one wonders!
