    Hear, hear. Always sad to lose a loco, but these things happen! 76017 has a new life now. I'm already looking forward to 75079 and 499 rolling out of Ropley!

    As 76017 vanishes into the WCRC depot at Southall, I hope that it won't be too long before she emerges to begin whatever her new life is to be. As an (armchair) MHR member, I'm naturally sad at the loss of a most useful loco especially given that...

    The new copper pipework has now reached onto the footplate. Attached are a couple of photos to show the state of play at the moment. [IMG][IMG] Sent from my SM-A226B using Tapatalk

    Conditions were no better further north, but the autumn colours still looked nice approaching Milford Junction. [ATTACH] https://richardstevens.smugmug.com/

    In past years, 5043 must have used up all the sun on its Christmas trips to York. 7029 once again heads north at Willington on a damp and foggy morning with Vintage trains Christmas White Rose. [ATTACH]

    He was actually driving this thing. There is nothing to stop steam going via Corby ‘over the alps’ . It’s the lack of a place to water. The only place is plat 1 at KET. Study the timetable and see if you can make it work. We’ve tried. We come off...

    Yesterday was one of the most surreal, and most fun, railtours I have ever been on. Wandering around a deserted Bristol Temple Meads was like being on the set of 28 Days Later. All of these busy stations that were literally empty except for us...

    Nice captures - the Tulse Hill one reminds me of one of mine from years back. Wasn't that Maidstone West, though? The viaduct shot also shows what a huge difference in window layout there is between the two side of the support coach![ATTACH]

    Not the best of days as the light got progressively worse. locations are Tulse Hill with the worst of the graffiti removed from the tunnel mouth, Maidstone West, probably better in b/w. By Rochester it was nearly dark so gave up on Sole St to use...
