    And the K1 plus 3 Mk1s backed out onto the Esk Valley for a Ghost/refresher training run to Battersby. Not only does that keep the drivers hand in for the route, but also the Moors option for ocassional running that way too. Over and above to Whitby.

    The trains might not be running at the moment, but you can join me for a virtual train ride behind WD 2-10-0 601 in August, 1992. So turn up the volume, sit back and enjoy:



    TTFN,

    Don't honestly know. But the K1 was in steam in the station at around 10 this morning.

    I must admit I liked the new appearance for Repton that appeared this morning on Facebook! Very smart, and the railway did well to keep the transformation under wraps! ;)

    Would this be something to do with its new blastpipe and chimney perchance? ;) Hope those trials go well later :)

    We have the Indian Red Snowplough, then the Blue Snowplough SNG, so why not have a Green one as well?

    Enjoyed this apart from the confusion of travel direction. MPD scenes very interesting, never seen the ICI water crane being used before, it is obviously the default place to refill before disposal.

    Must be one of the most used columns on the railway, its just not that visible from the public areas.
