    Such a shame, I've really enjoyed the diesel events I've attended at the NVR since I've moved down in 2012. A1A loco's have always struck me as a decent outfit, the 31 gala last year was rather good fun as an example of what they can do. Maybe an outstation at somewhere like the Mid Norfolk beckons?

    The WSR could do with a type 2 if there's one going, although they don't appear too keen on EE product's, with the 52 out long term 7018 still not 100% and 47840 not yet ready why have it in for the year, cheap to run, light and capable of typical loads with good acceleration yet small enough to make some interesting noise

    I don't see there being a shortage of offers @Captain Fantastic. Someone's going to get a useful machine for their railway somewhere.

    Having a late lunch at the NVR at Wansford and it's a hive of activity: Tornado in light steam and the blue class 14 busily shunting the crane and the vans around.

    Who needs the telly? :)

    As it will be leaving on Tuesday, an opportunity taken to get one last photo of Tornado. I was hoping it would still be wearing its temporary 35A shed plate, but sadly no.

    Also had a ride in Helga the railcar :)
