    Clun was apparently seen dead at Tyseley which casts doubt on its running for shareholders on Thursday though I would be delighted to be proved wrong.

    For those that knew him, a message on Facebook says that the ashes of Dave Rodgers will be conveyed over Ribblehead on the tour of the 8th. The annual reunion to mark the end of BR steam takes place the same day at the Station Inn, Ribblehead so a chance to raise a glass in Dave's memory.

    Same here, God willing. Would be equally happy with either, as I've always had a good day out behind 46115, but seeing as 35018 is in the area and Bulleids are my preference.

    Tuesday at Giggelswick, 45627 Sierra Leone was opened up as it reached the west end of the station, at which point there are now 60mph signs.
