    On 12th December, or thereabouts, ex-LMSR Ventilated Goods Van M187085 [built 1930] was loaded at Swanage Railway's road/rail access siding at Norden by Vic Haines Transport Ltd.
    It was being transported to it's new home in Worcestershire apparently.

    Yesterday, 2nd Jan 2019, 5 Windcutter wagons left Quorn GCR to go, on loan, to the Pontypool and Blaenavon Railway. Believed to be B279714, B279717, B98858, B212705, B165121. There may be another one to follow.

    Spotted on the A120 heading towards the M11 this afternoon. It looks like the ex-NNR one recently advertised; anyone know where it's off to?

    I had heard rumours of a crane bound for Whitwell & Reepham, ex Colne Valley. Could this be it?

    Seen at Kidderminster Railway Museum today, I believe this is GWR Tool Van 14984 formerly at Tyseley.

    Mm, I asked many years ago if it was possible to purchase it.......would have meant that The 813 Fund would own all three GWR iron tool vans.

    The van is now owned by The Kidderminster Railway Museum Trust. Most of the original fittings: small hand cranes, workbenches, stove is still present. Long term renovation project.
