  3. Dan Hill replied to the thread Bluebell Motive Power.

    Both recent Steam Railway and Heritage Railway magazines have reported 178 going on loan to Margate. I think Heritage Railway suggested it's display could help act as an ambassador for the Bluebell and towards raising funds for its overhaul.

    Was able to arrange a viewing for today, photos taken from point of safety with escort. I'm no expert, but the frames look to be really good. The inside of the cabin is dry so the roof is secure. Supports/uprights have rot at wood joints. Inside,...

  5. Dan Hill liked The Gricing Owl's post in the thread Spa Valley Railway - Latest News.

    Another wonderful day on the Spa Valley Railway as they run a BR Standards weekend with 78019 and 80078. The obvious route laid out around the shed/station area was great for photography and viewing the locos close up (first photo not only shows...

  7. Dan Hill liked AaronT's post in the thread Steam Dreams 2024.

    A new email from SD reads "Prepare for the pinnacle of our star-studded line-up later this summer as we eagerly anticipate the arrival of the unique 71000 Duke of Gloucester."

    I mentioned it in the 71000 thread, but the Steam Dreams Facebook account has shared the news about the agreement to use 71000, so presumably will be another loco to keep an eye for on tours later this year.

  9. Dan Hill replied to the thread 71000.

    Just checked the Facebook page for Steam Dreams and they've also posted the press release about 71000, but the bit about hauling Saphos railtours has been removed (but is still on the LSL and BR Standard Class 8 Locomotive Trust posts), so...

    No your not, as I thought it was said a few years back (around the time 60007 was signed up to Saphos), that 71000 had a similar arrangement with Vintage Trains?
