BBC News announced today that the Duke of Westminster has died at the young age of 64. In recent years he was behind the revival of part of the Sir Arthur Heywood engineered 15" gauge line that was originally built to serve his home and estate at Eaton Hall near Chester. A replica of the 0-4-0T Katie was purchased and he managed to obtain and have rebuilt some items of original rolling stock. I was lucky enough to have first hand experience of the line when I was there with the replica Effie from Cleethorpes 10 years ago for a gala. How the line will be affected by his passing is of course too early to say.
