    When Bert Hitchen owned 34027 she also visited the NYMR & East Somerset Railway. After being painted in Harry Potter maroon livery she visited the WSR and I think Bert sold her around that time and then bought 45231. Since Phil Swallow acquired her she has visited the MHR while in disguise as 34045.

    When I was writing a newsletter article Phil Swallow was keen it should say that he bought it with colleagues Nigel Barnes and Mark Younger. Messrs Younger and Swallow each have the 45.83% of shares in Taw Valley Limited.

    The purchase was circa 2001. The SVR Wiki has only the WSR jaunt. If someone knows the dates for the MHR trip (and anything else) I’ll update it. Thanks

    Latest issue of Heritage Railway, apparently in return for the use of 4953 at short notice.

    You’re welcome, both HR & RM always seem to be released on day they are dispatched to subscribers on Readily unlike SR which usually appears on the cover date, so usually seem to receive it sooner, my Dad still subscribes to HR direct and always gets his after it’s appeared on there.

    I think it was meant to be kept quiet for a little longer, but as it's in the public domain now - yes, 75069 was agreed as part of the last minute arangement for 4953.
