  5. 30854 liked pete2hogs's post in the thread Current and Proposed New-Builds.

    Bellerophon held her own amongst her bigger sisters at the Severn Valley spring gala this weekend and was well received by the Bewdley loco staff. The crews who manned her over the weekend on the Bewdley/Kidderminster shuttles were surprised how...

    Bagnall 2746 The Duke A notable first at Wirksworth- it was warmer inside the shed than out. Saturday was a relatively quiet day, most of the diesel types were busy elsewhere on the railway. The main effort went into repairing one of the cab...
