    Great clips ..... Cheers for posting them. Given the manufacturer of several of those fine locos, I'm biting my lip ....... :D

    ELR really is a super little line and I've very fond memories of an impromptu shed tour on a non-running day many moons ago. Odd coming from a Bulleid fan, but I really love the Dove built "Coronation", as it features in a couple of my late mother's holiday snaps from 'Tucktonia" in Christchurch (Dorset) back in the 1950's ... and Sir Arthur Heywood is my idea of what a 7.25in gauge loco should look like!

    Glad you enjoyed your visit from a while ago, all I will say is you need another visit as we have the two Merchant Navy's now at the railway, Channel Packet being the unrebuilt loco and Cunard White Star being the rebuilt version, both are 3 cylinder. CWS should be back up and running in a few weeks time in readiness for the school holidays as it's having some regulator work completed on it.

    I'll post the advert here for the summer gala which is going to be held on 22nd July and we aim to have as many loco's in steam as possible.
