    Now, I take it that's still by 73050's tender and isn't the smart wagon parked up next to the little DB shunter on the turntable?

    At the moment, we are planning to get the two which are almost done ready for this, which would bring the total currently available to six vans. I'm not sure what else is intended to be used for the charter - the freight experience ran with six wagons plus two brake vans, although I believe the maximum number available for the rake is 14 wagons, if they are all fit to run. We have a group meeting on 16th after which I may have a better answer.

    Following on from the Tornado freight charter, Martello is expected to be hauling some demo freight at NVR Southern Steam Gala on 9th/10th March (as well as Yarwell shuttles).
