    Now without the two Pacific's according to their website. Have possibly found two replacements, which would be quite an achievement with the current lack of "spare" locos around.

    Indeed, enjoy the fact that the Q6 is making a trip to the line. It will be a fantastic performer. Shame that it is short notice, as its caught me out and now I can't get there...

    I wonder when or whether we'll hear about what the second visitor will be, unless it's only the Q6, which is still a great visitor itself

    The cover photo of their Facebook has a TBC Box which suggests they have something lined up
